FAST track DBT program starting on Wednesday evenings February 8th (8 weeks)

Programs/Sign up

ALL programs are now being offered ONLINE. Same great courses live, interactive and just as informative and fun! We have both an afternoon and an evening option for our core programs!

Programs and Individual Therapy covered under most insurance plans who cover Registered Social Workers (MSW, RSW) and also a write off as a medical expense for your taxes.

Deciding on 12 or 24 week options for core program? Our Intro and Advanced are 12 weeks each. You can sign up for the 24 weeks upfront and save $100 on the cost of both or you can take the first 12 weeks and decide when you are finished if you want to go further. The research on efficacy shows that a 5 +month DBT program is recommended in order to really implement the skills. DBT as it was developed was originally meant to be a full 1 year program. In this format the content was first taught over a six month period and then the following six months were taught using the same content, methods etc. over again so that you get the benefit of running through twice. Many of our clients go through the course twice or go through the intro course twice before moving onto the advanced. I believe any amount of DBT is worth it!
