Church Health Services offers Life Skills Training
Do you, or someone you know, struggle with stress, overwhelming emotions, impulsivity or self-defeating patterns of behavior? Do you give up too easily, or find it difficult to find balance in your life in relationships and choices? Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills based training, offered by Church Health Services (CHS) in Dodge County, may have the solution for you. Counselors Deborah Walter and Jeana Meyer will facilitate these classes which can benefit both teenagers and adults.
DBT is a highly successful, evidence-based therapy that helps people find balance between conflicting needs, in order to lead a more effective life. Skill training, which is interactive and stimulating, covers four areas:
· Mindfulness – learning to focus on the present and participate in it fully, rather than being stuck in the past, or constantly worrying about the future
· Emotional Regulation – coping with intense emotions such as despair, rage, sadness, guilt
· Interpersonal Effectiveness – building more satisfying relationships, retaining relationships while achieving goals, maintaining self-respect and setting boundaries
· Distress Tolerance – learning to tolerate frustration, rejection, discomfort and loss of confidence in order to reach goals
The cost of the class may be covered by Medicaid/Badgercare, Badgercare Unity, or Badgercare Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield. For those interested in attending the class and not covered by any of the above plans, a sliding fee scale based on household income will be used.
