Emotional Empowerment: Hood River DBT

EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT: HOOD RIVER DBT
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) combines cognitive and behavioral therapy, incorporating methodologies from various practices including mindfulness techniques.


We’ve all found ourselves in a crisis, in a conflict with someone important in our lives or overwhelmed by emotion and circumstances. It can be difficult to maintain emotional balance while figuring out just how to navigate through those stressful times. For some, repetitive stressful events and an inability to recover fully from one event before another occurs, results in destructive behaviors, such as self-injury and suicide attempts, drug/alcohol or food related problems. It takes skills to solve life’s problems while enduring intense emotion.

In DBT, four skills modules are designed to specifically assist individuals in better managing behavioral, emotional and cognitive instability. Their intent is to help people with problems with anger or the expression with anger, episodic depression, irritability or anxiety, intense or chaotic relationships, impulsivity, stress and feelings of emptiness.

The Four Skill Modules:

 Mindfulness is designed to teach a person how to focus their mind and attention. This two week module is repeated between the others.

 Distress tolerance is centered on accepting the current situation and finding ways to survive and tolerate the moment without engaging in problematic behavior. This is a 6 week module.

 Emotion regulation skills include learning to identify and label current emotions, identifying obstacles to changing emotions, reducing emotional reactivity, increasing positive emotions, and changing emotions. This is a 6 week module.

 Interpersonal effectiveness skills teach effective strategies for asking for what one needs, saying no, and coping with interpersonal conflict. This is a 6 week module.

New skills are presented each week and homework is assigned to practice during the week. Homework is reviewed at a later individual session or at the next group. The goal is for members to gain new skills, get better at the skills they have and be able to use the skills when they are really needed, like during times of intense emotion, crisis or conflict.

Group Counseling: $45 per group. Depending on your plan, cost may be covered by insurance.


Intake: Please call to set up an individual assessment appointment with one of our co-facilitators to enter the group. See information on side bar.

Weekly: Thursdays 1:30-3pm. Location: 209 Oak Street, Suite 204
