Adelaide DBT offers a treatment programme specifically for the needs of young people. This includes the following components:

  • Skills training group
  • Individual therapy with an Adelaide DBT therapist
  • Between-session phone consultation for the youth
  • Liaison between our team and others involved in supporting you (e.g., GP’s, psychiatrists)

Allongside DBT Skills Group, we run workshops for parents/caregivers that focus on:

  • Understanding the core philosophy of DBT
  • Information on emotion dysregulation including core DBT Skills on Distress Tolerance and Emotion Regulation
  • Information to assist with improving your relationship with your youth, including mindfulness and interpersonal effectiveness skills
    NB: Priced separatley

We also require the youth to engage in individual therapy, however this is priced separately and the frequency is negotiable.

The full cost of the program applies should you miss any sessions or discontinue with attendance. This is $2300, or $2000 with a valid health care concession card. Payment plans MUST be discussed at the assessment appointment to be considered. Please see "Individualised" for the cost of individual appointments.

***Please note that we do not accept clients into our youth group who are not willing to engage in individual therapy with an Adelaide DBT therapist for individual therapy.***
