No, I don't but perhaps start by asking at the local hospitals

I did a search on google for DBT therapists in Brooklyn. This is the link I was given. You may have to weed out the art therapists from the group therapists but maybe you'll get somewhere. I'll keep searching.

This is what came up with DBT groups in the search on Google. Maybe it will be more helpful. Looked more like what you were looking for.

When I was looking for a psychologist many yrs back, I was incredibly successful at finding the ones at the top of the field near me by asking psychiatrist and social workers who is the best for (in my case) dissocaiative disoders. I would highly recommend that. When I found a repeat name or two, I knew who to try to gain as a therapist. Perhaps it is time consuming, but the results were useful -- I maintained the therapist for 15 yrs until my insurance wimped out on me.

I'm not sure what to do. I found a group and it's a twice a week commitment for 6-8 months. It sounds like an incredibly long time. What do you think?

I think the educational aspects and the commitment will make it more helpful - but it is a commitment to stick with it....

Wishing you wisdom in making the best choice for you....

With admittedly limited info at hand, if it's a good program with a good respectful coordinator then go for it!!!!
Why not?

Don't know if you started the group, but my advice is make the commitment. You most probably will learn something new -- I did. It teaches you different coping mechanisms than you currently have. You may like it or hate it but truth is, there is a lot to be said for DBT. The only downside is for a few courses worth you are going to feel lost -- you need to learn the lingo. Once you have, it will come easier.
