About the Group
Anger and depression are secondary emotions, driven by feelings and experiences beneath. Anxiety is generic distress, without the identifying emotional flavor or knowledge of the source. The purpose of the group is to help members learn about underlying emotions and impulses that can damage their relationships.
The group is open to men and women. Group members will learn about all of their emotions, their purpose, and a way to transform emotion to do productive work in their lives. Group members will learn how to rebalance the power in their relationships, and to communicate respectfully with sensitivity and assertiveness.
This group is not intended as a replacement for Anger Management education, but could be considered a therapeutic follow-up for anger classes. Clients sometimes report an increase in depression and anxiety after learning to manage their anger. Clients appropriate for this group may have a past history of history of violence, but no active violent behavior in the past year.
This group might be considered as a preparation for couple’s counseling to repair a damaged relationship. Group members will learn to fully participate in healthy intimate relationships. Couples counseling could be found to be premature before completing this group.
Prospective group members will be assessed comprehensively including mental health issues, history of aggressiveness or violence, and relationship history. Referrals may be made for psychiatric assessments. Medication compliance maybe required for individual members if deemed necessary.

The DBT Skills Training Group meets weekly at Nuview Psychological Services and is taught in a 1 1/2 hour lecture style format. It takes about seven (7) months to complete all the modules once and new clients are added every ten weeks. It is recommended that clients complete all modules twice, though this isn’t required. Skills learned are practiced at home. Diary cards are completed weekly to assist in using skills learned and in monitoring mood as well as making changes in target behaviors. Occasional homework assignments assist clients in putting new skills into practice. Call David Earl Johnson, MSW, LICSW at 763-250-1231. For appointments call 651-430-0888.
