DBT ACES ( Accepting the Challenges of Exiting the Care System)
$20 // Meets weekly on Monday Evenings 6:15-7:45p // Fairfield Office
Clients who have completed two cycles (one year) of Standard Dialectical
Behavioral Therapy skills class and are still struggling to find their life worth living -or-are seeking a greater understanding or practice of DBT skills and concepts of behavioral change.
The Goal of our DBT ACES program :
Clients will push ahead with new goals to help them create a support network, acquire employment that is in line with their values and needs, experience their emotions and are able to demonstrate mastery of standard DBT skills. At completion of DBT-ACES, the client will be finished with standard weekly therapy or will seek a specific treatment (ie: exposure therapy). It is recognized that continuing with standard weekly therapy keeps the client dependent on the mental health system thus reinforcing their identity of mental illness.
