Mt. Diablo Psychological Services provides Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, California
Telephone skills coaching is a service that clients receive when they are in the full DBT program with MDPS. Full program constitutes weekly skills groups and weekly individual DBT sessions. Skills coaching is designed to help DBT clients use their skills in those difficult situations where they need them the most.
Calls to your primary therapist are encouraged in DBT under the following circumstances:
1. When you are in crisis or facing a problem that you cannot solve on your own and need skills coaching.
2. When your relationship with your therapist is in disrepair and mending is needed.
