“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elizabeth Kubler Ross

DBT Skills Groups in Beverly Hills.
Our DBT skills training groups are focused on enhancing clients’ capabilities by teaching them behavioral skills. The groups are run according to Marsha Linehan’s model following the DBT skills training manual. The group leaders and co-leaders teach the skills and assign homework for clients to practice using the skills in their everyday lives. Our groups will also cover the four modules of DBT skills:
How to change emotions that you want to change.
How to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it.
How to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others.
The practice of being fully aware and present in this one moment.
Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Wallach with any questions you may have.
