Neurodivergent Distress Tolerance and Mindfulness Workshop is a weekly guided neurodivergent focused DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) skills workshop using the Neurodivergent Friendly Workbook of DBT Skills. Learn about what helps YOU as a neurodivergent individual. DBT is a long standing and trusted therapy used in reducing maladaptive learned behaviors in people who try to control and suppress intense emotions instead of working through them. DBT focuses on learning to balance, accepting and validating yourself and feelings, and recognizing that change still needs to happen in order to end unhelpful and/or self-destructive cycles. Build a tool kit (metaphorically and physically with plenty of freebies!) of coping skills for moments of intense feelings and ways to reduce the frequency of them through helping you and others in your life understand your neurodivergent needs. 

All participants receive a FREE journal, and multiple self-care and sensory items throughout the program. 

This program is free for all students. 

*There are many types of neurodivergence! This workbook and group will mostly focus on.

  • Identifying patterns and feelings
  • Understanding and meeting different sensory needs
  • Mindfulness and self-care accommodated to sensory and focus struggles

If this doesn't fit your struggles individually, we hope you find a tool better fit for your needs! * 

This workshop is weekly and builds from week to week. Everyone is welcome to stop in, but consistent attendance is asked for to help both you and the facilitator! Print out of workbook is included to all attendants. Anyone who self-identifies as neurodivergent is welcome.
