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