The Eating Disorders Group is a weekly DBT skills training
group for individuals who suffer from eating disorders including anorexia,
bulimia, binge-eating and related difficulties.
The Eating Disorders group meets in West Los Angeles at:
2288 Westwood Blvd (between
Pico and Santa Monica)
afternoons from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
am seeking motivated clients that are interested in joining our Eating Disorders group as a supplement to their own
personal work in individual therapy.
Eating Disorders group is scheduled to begin on Saturday, February 25, has a
ceiling of ten participants maximum, and once started, will run closed for ten
weeks. The fee is $100 per session and clients will be asked to pay before the
start of each meeting.
During our weekly sessions we will teach, model,
and role play skills from each of the DBT skills training modules:
improve awareness, increase capacity to derive pleasure in the moment, reduce
emotional distress associated with living in the past, and increase capacity to
control one’s own mind.
· Distress Tolerance
focused on learning how to tolerate unavoidable pain in life, crisis survival,
self-soothing, acceptance, and coping tools.
aimed at reducing vulnerability to negative emotions by identifying,
describing, and understanding them, as well as building positive experiences,
mastery, and learning to let go, thus increasing capacity to experience joy and
communication skills targeted on improving relationships, how to express wants
effectively, assertiveness, how to reinforce boundaries, and negotiate needs in
gentle, mindful ways that preserve self-respect.
I ask that all
Eating Disorders Group clients already be working with
their own individual therapist as a pre-requisite for participation in the
group. Clients will be given consent forms notifying their personal therapist
of the clients’ participation in the group and requesting that therapist’s
approval of such participation.
