Emotion Regulation Group

Wednesdays, 4:15pm to 5:45pm starting September 1st, 2021, for 12 weeks

Many people struggle to manage emotions – not knowing what they’re feeling, or what to do with emotions that arise – and often turn to problem behaviours in attempts to cope with emotions (e.g. avoiding, lashing out at others, doing things that are self-destructive).


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that helps people who struggle with emotion dysregulation related to mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and addictions; as well as difficulties with anger, grief, shame, and other painful emotions. 


This 12 week-long DBT skills training group will teach participants skills to help: 


  • Reduce emotional pain by increasing awareness and acceptance of the present moment 

  • Endure intense emotions without making the situation worse

  • Identify, understand, and accept emotions, reduce emotional intensity, and improve problem-solving to promote planful responding rather than impulsive reacting

  • Improve relationships by setting healthier limits, problem-solving, and assertive communication 


Cost of Group:  $900 (includes a 30-minute assessment and group materials; receipt is provided upon payment for extended benefits or income tax purposes).


Sheri provides online monthly consultation groups for clinicians interested in developing their skills as DBT-informed therapists. Consultation groups will consist of a maximum of four participants, at a rate of $130 per person (plus hst), with a minimum required commitment of four sessions.


Two group times are offered: first Thursday of the month from 10:00 - 11:00am ET, and second Thursday of the month from 1:00 - 2:00 pm ET.
