Do you care for a young person who struggles to manage their emotions? Do you feel overwhelmed, unsure of what to do to help them, or have run out of ideas? 

Our thoughtfully created caregiver skills group encompasses the practicality of Marsha Linehan's Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) with a focus on Connection.

DBT is a cognitive-behavioural approach emphasizing how a person interacts with others in different situations and relationships. It teaches specific behavioural skills to manage strong feelings and to improve interpersonal connections. 

In our innovative 8-week DBT Informed Caregiver Skills Group, we provide you with concrete tips, tools and strategies to help you COPE Well with the day to day challenges of caring for a teen with intense emotions. Our program addresses interpersonal challenges and highlights the importance of ‘connection’ between caregiver and adolescent.

Who is it for? 

Caregivers/parents of individuals aged 12-25 with intense emotions/ mental health concerns
