Each 9-week module will focus on one of the core DBT skills (Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, or Interpersonal Effectiveness). Mindfulness skills (the fourth core DBT skill) will be addressed in every module. These modules can be taken individually in any order and/or independently from each other.
