A Life Worth Living: Teen’s DBT Skills Group
The support and understanding of parents if often vital to successful Dialectical Behavioral Therapy DBT treatment for adolescents; however, parents or parental figures may feel a range of negative emotions surrounding the child and the therapeutic intervention, like shame, guilt, anger, or helplessness. Working with parents to create an open, compassionate environment where their feelings are validated helps ensure that everyone is focused on the recovery of the adolescent—and, by extension, the entire family. If a parent brings an adolescent into therapy, he or she has already undoubtedly weathered years of intense emotions and the resulting maladaptive behaviors.
