The goal of the Rise Up Skills Group is to help adolescents who have experienced trauma to learn the coping skills necessary to change behavioral, emotional, thinking, and interpersonal patterns associated with problems in everyday living. While this group utilizes skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy it is important to note that the facilitators and

co-facilitators at Rise Up Counseling Services are not DBT therapists, and are not offering DBT therapy. Instead we recognize that DBT skills are useful tools for anyone who has experienced trauma to learn.

Skills that participants will learn, include:

- Mindfulness

- Distress Tolerance

- Interpersonal Effectiveness

- Emotional Regulation
