The Managing Life Stress group is a 8-week DBT-informed group that focuses on the awareness, impact, and management of life stress, including (but not limited to) academic, social, personal, family-of-origin, mental health, and relationship stress. The goal of this group is to help students tolerate life stress and enhance their overall well-being.

Group information highlights strategies that enhance personal awareness, skills to tolerate distress (aka “crisis survival skills”), overall emotion regulation skills, and enhancing interpersonal effectiveness. This group provides a safe environment to share as little, or as much, as students feel comfortable while focusing on learning life skills. The group is mostly lecture and information sharing, with accountability sharing of skills practice between sessions.
