"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

-Shannon McParland, Principal, Sioux Trail Elementary

Dialectical Behavorial Therapy (DBT)

What is DBT?
This program, developed by Marsha Linehan, is for individuals who are suicidal, self-injurious and have difficulty managing their emotions and sustaining relationships.

Through individual therapy, skills groups and coaching, our DBT program helps individuals learn to become more mindful of their feelings, thoughts and behaviors; regulate their emotions and become more resilient; manage distress and increase impulse control; and improve relationships and self-respect.

Who Would Benefit From DBT?
Individuals who benefit from this approach:

  • Experience chronic suicidal thoughts
  • Engage in self-harming behavior
  • Engage in behavior that inhibits quality of life
  • Struggle to regulate emotions
  • Have difficulty sustaining relationships
  • Are confused about themselves and their emotions or behaviors

Common diagnoses among DBT clients include depression and other mood, anxiety, and personality disorders.

When is it Offered?
We offer DBT Skills Groups for men and women.  These groups meet once per week.  Individual DBT therapy is ongoing.

Group Schedule:
Women’s DBT group meets one day per week for two hours

  • Thursday 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Mixed Gender DBT group meets one day per week for two hours

  • Wednesday 4:00pm-6:00pm

Clients will be individually assessed for their readiness to participate in individual DBT therapy and skills group. We do not currently have a skills group for clients with developmental disabilities.

Enrollment in the program requires a one year commitment and will require collaboration between the client’s professional team, including case manager, individual therapist, psychiatrist, primary care physician, residential staff and other service providers as needed.

Call 763-746-2411 for more information or to schedule an intake appointment.
