Skills Training Groups use a combination of lecture, practice, and discussion to teach new coping skills. Skills training classes run for 24 sessions with the option to complete the cycle twice for a full year of skills training. Group members are required to be in ongoing individual therapy.
Skills Integration Groups are for those who have completed a skills training group or program and would like help applying the skills to different environments and relationships. The group format is based on the agenda items of group members, and participants practice their validation and problem-solving skills with one another. Skills integration groups require a 16-session commitment, with the option to continue if recommended.
