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.


  1. This looks awesome. Thank you for developing it. I'm going to try it with some mh patients.
