Join us to learn the basics of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a science-backed program to help you and your teen manage big emotions and improve communication.
Here’s what we’ll cover:
Learn why your teen gets triggered easily and experiences intense emotions so that you can head off unhealthy behaviors before they start
Gain a step-by-step skill to know exactly how to respond when your teen is overwhelmed with emotion
Find the balance between exploding and giving in to keep your relationship strong and help you feel good about how you’re responding to your teen, without guilt or regret after the interaction ends
Learn when to step in and support your teen and when to foster independence so that they are actually prepared for adulthood and managing life’s challenges successfully
Understand what’s typical behavior and what’s cause for concern — so you know when professional support is warranted and when it’s okay to chalk it up to teen hormones
