Groups for Men and for Women


Machon Dvir - the Dvir Institute - runs Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups for English speaking men and women in Jerusalem. All group therapy is gender separate, and we have new groups starting all the time.

DBT in a group context can be very helpful for people who are struggling with managing strong emotions, as well as impulsive, addictive and self-harming behaviors and dysregulated eating. It teaches mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal skills.

At Machon Dvir, individual and group therapy, along with medical management, is provided by an integrated, multidisciplinary team comprising a psychiatrist, a psychologist and a social worker. We offer high intensity and low intensity DBT programs, with the option of weekly group sessions being combined with individual DBT therapy (either within the service or provided by the participant’s existing individual therapist, with whom we liaise throughout the treatment process).

Before joining a program, every participant undergoes a comprehensive assessment to understand their history and develop an integrated treatment plan with specific goals. In between therapy we use online questionnaires and a smartphone app to enable participants to monitor participants progress. At Machon Dvir we are familiar with the terms of standard medical insurance policies and may be able to advise you on the best way to cover the costs of your DBT treatment in Israel.
