New Light Recovery Workshop Spring 2013

Starts: Monday, September 10th 2012 at 12:30 pm
Ends: Monday, January 21st 2013 at 4:00 pm

The New Light Recovery Workshop is a peer-led psycho-educational program.  The eighteen week program is offered twice a year at no charge.  Dialectical Behavioral Techniques are based on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a cognitive-behavioral treatment developed by Marsha M. Linehan, PhD.  DBT develops coping skills to manage intense feelings. Although originally designed to treat people with Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT has proven effective for people with a wide range of mental health and addiction issues.  Modules include mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness.  Each session provides time for learning new DBT skills, practicing them and a discussion of how to apply the skills.
