Southlake Counseling’s DBT Skills Summer Camp

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a research-backed group to help your middle schooler develop effective coping skills, manage self-criticism and improve interpersonal relationships while increasing overall focus, resilience and emotional well-being.

 
Does your tween:
• Sometimes feel “bad” or “upset” without knowing exactly why?
• Judge him or herself critically or make statements about disliking themselves?
• Feel misunderstood or alone?
• Ignore their own needs, but focus on wanting others to be
   happy?
• Feel hopeless or like they have nothing to look forward to in
   life?
• Have a hard time standing up for themselves?
• Get into unhealthy relationships with people who don’t
   treat them fairly?
• Switch friend groups often or cut others off easily?
• Avoid feelings by shutting down or self-harming?
• Tend to dwell on the negative parts of life?
 
 
Before heading back to school in the fall, many tweens can use a little help improving their social skills. Southlake Counseling is offering a DBT Skills Based Summer Camp to help rising 6th-9th graders learn the skills to cope with emotions in a healthy and productive manner.  This six week camp offers a unique blend of activities where kids will learn the skills, practice them with the guidance of our therapists, and review at the end of the session.  Sessions will be held on Fridays, from July 7th-August 11th from 9:00-12:00. Contact Southlake Counseling for more information – 704-896-7776. Space is limited.
