How to enroll in our DBT therapy programs at Nashville Child & Family Wellness Center.
If you are interested in any of our DBT programs, the first step is to complete a DBT Services Request Form. If you are currently being seen by a mental or behavioral health services provider or if you have been hospitalized or participated in IOP or PHP programs in the past 6 months, you will be required to complete a Release of Information for the provider(s) and any higher level of care facility. Our DBT Intake Coordinator will review all documents and gather the needed information prior to scheduling.
Next, a member of our staff will contact you to schedule a DBT Intake and Orientation Session.
The DBT Intake and Orientation session is a minimum of 90 minutes long with both the teen and caregiver(s). The goals of this session are:
Following this Intake and Orientation session, the DBT Treatment Team will review gathered information and make treatment recommendations, including but not limited to Comprehensive DBT, DBT Group Skills-Only, Parent Behavioral Training, or other treatment services. Additional sessions may be recommended prior to beginning a DBT Skills Group or Comprehensive DBT. Typically, these sessions focus on further assessment, enhancing motivation and commitment, and addressing other factors that will help clients benefit from DBT participation.
