In the Mood

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) skills groups teach people to manage a range of intense emotions, commonly seen in those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. These skills have proven to also benefit those suffering with depression, anxiety, alcohol or drug addictions, and other mental health disorders.

We currently offer two levels of DBT skills groups for Marrin Weejali clients:

Beginners Level - In the Mood (Foundations), where clients learn change-oriented skills and acceptance-oriented skills, more commonly known as: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, & Distress Tolerance skills.
Advanced Level - In the Mood for More (Relationships), where clients learn how to get their needs met while maintaining their relationships and maintaining their self-respect.

Criteria apply for those interested in participating in these groups and clients will need to be recommended by their Marrin Weejali counsellor. The groups are open for the first 3 weeks of each term before closing until the start of the following term. 

These DBT skills groups are offered in partnership with the University of Sydney's Gambling Treatment & Research Clinic.
