DBT Advanced Skills Roundtable

Have you completed a DBT program before?

Have you previously learned DBT skills within a group or individual session and feel you could use some ongoing support applying DBT skills to your daily life in a way that works for you?  If so, the DBT Advanced Skills Roundtable may be the right next step for you.

What is it

This program offers a flexible way to add ongoing support and accountability to your DBT learning journey, while also connecting you with a community of peers who are coping with similar situations and issues.

Layla’s DBT Advanced Skills Roundtables provide you with access to reliable and relatable DBT Skills content on the Layla platform, complemented by weekly optional drop-in meetings facilitated by a dedicated Layla therapist. Our goal is to support you in increasing your comfort level in integrating DBT skills within your daily life.

You have the flexibility to choose the frequency of sessions that work best for your schedule and needs. The program content ranges from short videos, audio, exercises, and handouts developed by Layla’s DBT therapists. Drop-in sessions will focus on enhancing knowledge and understanding of DBT skills through sharing and mutual learning. You and your peers will be in a safe and supportive space to share the successes and struggles of DBT skills application. You will receive timely feedback, validation and support from the facilitator as well as your peers to deepen your understanding of DBT skills and application.  

Is the DBT Advanced Skills Roundtable right for me? Consider the following:

  • You have a baseline level of learning in DBT skills gained through previous experience with group or individual DBT therapy.
  • You are looking to continue your development of skills, accountability, and structure after completing group or individual sessions.
  • You are interested in connecting with like-minded folks to discuss DBT skills integration and application in shorter, drop-in sessions.
  • You feel like you can use some support to work through situations to effectively apply DBT Skills going forward in your daily life.
  • If you are new to learning DBT Skills, Layla's DBT Skills Group may be a better fit for your needs.
