Group Therapy

Radically Open DBT Skills

When good things turn bad—move out of OVER control and into a life worth living.

Expand your psychological
health and change behavioral patterns

For some of us, the traits that allow us to thrive and succeed can also cause us great suffering and isolation. This group is designed to help you move out of OVER control and into a life worth living.

In this group, we will:

  • Explore intimacy and connectedness with at least one other person
  • Develop more receptivity and openness to new and disconfirming feedback in order to learn
  • Practice flexible control in order to adapt to changing environmental demands

Facilitated by Kara Conner, LMSW, our group (which is more like a class) meets every Thursday from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM at our offices in Brentwood, TN.

The Group Process

Radically Open DBT Skills groups are more like classes than they are like therapy groups and therefore they are structured as such. Each session will explore deeper into the topic for the semester: Openness or Social Signaling.

Group members will develop communication and thinking patterns that provide more rewarding experiences, relationships, and closeness with others.

Schedule & Fees

The full curriculum for Radically Open DBT Skills is 30 weeks long: 15 weeks on Openness and 15 weeks on Social Signaling.

Members must commit to attendance and participation for 15 weeks or one “semester.” Payment for classes will be billed weekly at $60 per class.
Class members will also be asked to purchase the Radically Open DBT Skills training manual.
Holiday schedules for class will be provided for members to plan accordingly.
