DBT House

I have been looking for new activities to use with depressed children and adolescents and came across this activity in an MFT Facebook group that I am a part of.




This "DBT House" (DBT stands for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) is a mindfulness activity.  It helps children to recognize their strengths, ways of coping, support system, values, and so forth.  After doing some more research on how to create a DBT House and finding instructions at Kim's Counseling Corner, I created my own template for those children who don't wish to draw their own house.
