DBT Refresh will be running via Zoom for four weeks from 3:00 – 5:00 on Mondays starting Monday May 25th.   The intention of Refresh is to give DBT grads an opportunity to share how the skills have been impacting our lives since finishing the group. This is NOT a skills-teaching group (prior DBT program completion is required of all participants) but rather an opportunity to hear how other people have been using DBT and/or seek support from fellow peers. If you have examples/scenarios from your life that are related to the skills we are covering this week, feel free to bring them along! We welcome both mindful sharing and supportive listening here.

Registered Programming

** Intake Appointment Required**

WRAP

Wednesdays, 3-5pm. Registration for future groups is open. 

Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is a peer-facilitated wellness program that helps you be in charge of your mental health recovery. WRAP discusses concepts like hope, education, peer support, self-determination and self advocacy. Along with a variety of activities and group discussions, participants will develop a wellness toolbox and action plans around triggers, identify signs of crisis and develop a crisis plan.

Individual Counselling

Monday-Friday by appointment. Participants will meet with the same clinician for 6 consecutive sessions that take place every 1 to 2 weeks. Sessions are 50 minutes long.

The short term individual counselling approach at Stella’s Place is integrative drawing primarily from Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT). FACT is a brief version of  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and is an effective treatment for many mental health challenges. In a FACT approach, participants are viewed as “stuck, not broken”and treatment targets one primary issue, which is collaboratively selected by participant and clinician. Clinicians introduce experiential interventions during sessions to increase participant awareness, skillfulness, and encourage application beyond sessions. FACT supports individuals in taking values-based actions while coping flexibly and effectively with difficult challenges, thoughts, memories, and emotions.

DBT Skills

Mondays & Wednesdays, 1-3pm. Registration for future groups is open.

Learn to apply Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills to your life. You will learn how to identify and cope with your emotions, how to manage difficult situation, and how to build communication skills with family and friends.

Skills for Safer Living

Thursdays, 12:30-2:30 pm. Registration for future groups is open. 

The Skills for Safer Living group focuses on living life more safely. It offers skills to help participants learn to identify needs, regulate emotions, problem solve when distressed, and improve one’s effectiveness in relationships. This program invites the participant to consider engaging with life and consider thinking about the future differently. The participant will also learn to name their moments of control when they find themselves in a moment of emotional crisis. What makes the group unique is the understanding that every participant in the room identifies as a suicide attempt survivor and wants to live a safer, more meaningful life. 

We want to stay in touch, but don’t worry, we don’t send too many emails and you can unsubscribe any time.
