By providing practical tools in this safe, small group environment, you are able to feel at ease and equipped to take steps of progress wherever you are at on your journey. Everyone is encouraged to participate for the entirety of the series, though even if you can come for just one week to experience mindfulness and DBT you will get a useful tool, concept, or experience that you will benefit from. This is an experiential group, so individuals do not share personal experiences, but rather participate in conversations and practices surrounding each topic.
The skills in the group are referenced in Marsha Linehan's DBT Skills Training Manual. This is an invaluable resource and reference guide for learning and practicing DBT skills. I've had many clients flip to the index of the book when they are in freak-out mode to find a skill to help them effectively navigate it. There is a link to purchase the book on my website: http://www.drsandypeace.com/shop.html
or you can pick it up at most bookstores.
I want to wholeheartedly extend the invitation to you to join us for the Monday Mindfulness Group DBT series, starting this week and running for the next 14 weeks. Please call my office at 323-432-0676 to reserve your space, and plan to be at the US Bank Tower 26th Floor Conference Room at 633 West 5th Street, Los Angeles, CA. 90017 from 8:00-9:30 PM this Monday night.
I look forward to meeting you there and sharing a magical, mindful experience together.
