The DBT Program

The DBT program is a therapeutic staffed foster home located in Windham County for girls ages 13-17. Employing the principles of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, the program combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotion regulation and reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful awareness for participants and their families. Individual and group treatment (which includes family members) offers opportunities for growth and understanding.
