Who is the program for? 

This four-week program is designed to help people develop skills to cope with periods of distress, manage challenging emotions and improve relationship skills, in a supportive environment.  

The treatment approach draws from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Developed by psychologist Marsha Linehan (1993), DBT helps people with a range of concerns such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Complex PTSD, or chronic trauma related symptoms.

How will it help me? 

This program is most suitable for people who experience longstanding difficulties managing emotions and coping with periods of distress. These difficulties may be impacting their quality of life, relationships and self-worth. The program can also assist with impulsive, suicidal or self-harming behaviours by presenting alternative coping strategies.

The program’s skills-based group sessions occur from Monday to Friday throughout the four-week admission and participants will be provided with twice weekly individual skills coaching sessions. In addition, participants will be offered group sessions such as weekly art therapy, music therapy and physical therapy/mindful movement.

When does the program run?

The inpatient Emotion Management Program runs on an ongoing basis, every four weeks.
