Young Adult DBT

"Adulting" is Hard!

For people, ages 18 - 23, with Depression, Anxiety, Emotion Regulation difficulties, and/or Relationship and Transition issues.  Inspired's Young Adult DBT Group is excellent for young adults who are stuck in their individual and/or family therapy or need additional skill-building or support.  

You see people your age moving forward and creating healthy relationships, going to school and/or making solid plans for their future. You feel stuck. People don't get how hard this all is for you. Ask yourself these questions to determine if DBT might be a good fit for you...

❏  Do you sometimes feel “bad” or “upset” without knowing exactly why?

                                                         

❏  Do you often judge yourself critically or make statements about       

      disliking yourself? 

                              

❏  Do you try and avoid feelings by shutting down, self-harming, or using   

      substances?   

                                 

❏  Do you tend to dwell on the negative parts of life? 

                                                        

❏  Do you feel hopeless or like you have nothing to look forward to in life? 

                                  

❏  Do you tend to ignore your own needs, but focus on wanting others to be 

      happy, "people pleasing"? 

                                                            

❏  Do you tend to get into unhealthy relationships with people who don’t treat you  

      well? 

    

❏  Do you tend to be passive in communicating with others and have a hard time

      standing up for yourself? 

                               

❏  Do you switch friend groups often or cut others off easily?

❏  Do you feel misunderstood or alone?

If you've answered "Yes" to 3 or more of these questions, DBT can give you some concrete skills to move forward with and help you create the life you want. 

DBT Will Help You...

  • Evaluate and understand your emotions so you know how to respond to them instead of reacting and making the situation worse with self-destructive behaviors

​​

  • Communicate effectively and maintain positive relationships with friends, family, and teachers or co-workers when intense emotions make relating to others in a healthy way challenging

​​

  • Gain confidence to ask for help when life gets overwhelming and to say "no" to others when pressure becomes too intense

​​

  • Discover how to mindfully and fully enjoy each moment, even when life around you starts to feel like too much... because learning to be happy and create skills now, will help you interact with the world, from this point forward.

We can help. Are you ready?
