Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Group
This group can be a fresh start for many who have that “stuck,” feeling, bringing new life as they explore a different approach to old problems. By participating in a DBT group, the client can practice skills, have accountability and be given the chance to celebrate his/her success with others who can relate to seemingly simple, yet amazing accomplishments.
The Dialectical therapy model was created to use in both group and individual therapy. Marsha Linehan theorizes that by using the group setting, you not only maximize learning and cost effectiveness, but also allow the opportunity for interpersonal skills training. Group members can practice in group, a safer setting, the skills they will need in the outside world. They can also report back to the group success with their skills or areas that need further work.
For maximum benefit it is important that the individual who attends any DBT group have a therapist who is familiar and comfortable working with the components of DBT. An individual therapist who is willing to work as a team member is crucial. An additional goal is to eventually decrease reliance on outside providers, such as frequency of hospitalizations, and increase reliance on the client’s inner resources, those being the very skills learned in DBT group.
A diagnosis of Borderline Personality disorder is not necessary, but certain criteria must be met before an individual can participate in the DBT group. For more information on the DBT group, please contact us at 308-382-5297, ext 10 or email us.
What Exactly is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy?
Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends:
This group is designed to help people change a crisis into a creative experience. A crisis usually includes emotional and psychological pain. If this pain can be embraced and used as motivation to grow and adjust, it will help people make the crisis a creative experience. The goal of this group is not only to help people adjust but also to help them transform and learn to take charge of their lives. This group is a ten-week program and participants should attend all ten groups in order to achieve the best results. All participants will receive a workbook on rebuilding to guide them through the group topics and help them apply the information to themselves. Most participants of this group are better able to adjust to the ending of their love relationship, and they are also more capable of building and creating more lasting and healthy relationships.
Support Group for Parents of Attachment Disordered Children
This support group is facilitated by Kellie Boutin who is a trained foster parent and has lots of experience with reactive attachment parenting. The support group is offered as an opportunity for parents who are experiencing a high level of stress to find support and understanding in order to help their child and maintain as a family. Use this support group as an opportunity to share parenting strategies, learn more about what approaches will work for your children, support others, receive support, and utilize support systems to develop cooperative respite approaches. This is not a therapeutic group. This group meets the first Tuesday of every month at Wholeness Healing Center in the conference room from 7:00-8:30 PM. No child care is available.

Learning WholeHearted Living through “The Connections” Women’s Group
This is a 12-week women’s group on WholeHearted living. The forum allows the participants the opportunity to grow and develop more fully into their authentic selves. According to Brene’ Brown, Living WholeHearted is our deepest yearning. It has to do with developing our full, whole self. This comes from a life lived with authenticity, love and belonging, and a resilient spirit. Authenticity can only be accomplished when we have learned to love our own authentic self and risk sharing it with others. Develop your sense of belonging “within” yourself rather than searching for “outside acceptance and approval”. Become aware of how trying “to fit” in and “be in the right group” doesn’t meet our human need to belong but actually gets in our way. Become grounded by a deep sense of purpose and guided by your own resilient spirit.
Use this group to work towards WholeHearted living. Learn more about your true self and share it with others in the group. “The Connections” curriculum by Brene’ Brown gives people the tools to recognize and understand shame, moving away from feeling shame to feeling guilt all with the goal of finding the path towards WholeHearted Living.
