Hello, I have struggled with depression, anxiety and negative thinking since I was a teenager. My mother is borderline and I never learned strategies for managing difficult emotions. This summer I did a two week intensive course in DBT (Dialectical Behaivor Therapy) and am now in a DBT support group that meets in person one evening a week. Recently, I started seeing a therapist who specialized in DBT. Even with all of this support, I still slip back to old habits of procrastination, worry and negative thinking. I believe DBT could make a radical difference for me as long as I practice and use the skills everyday. I long to get out of the dark hole of depression and anxiety and begin thriving.

Anyone out there actively using DBT? I'd love to find or create a DBT forum so I can learn how others are applying DBT skills and share my progress and ask questions as well.

I've heard of dialectical behaviour therapy but don't quite understand how it works. Can you elaborate?

That’s a cool idea ziggy! My therapist is using little aspects of it with me. But I know others on here know more about it. I’d be up for learning more and sharing strategies
