Yes! DBT rocks. I was in it for about 3 years, group and individual. Unfortunately, as with so many other things, it was super expensive. I just started again last week since I was falling apart and I know it helped a lot with issues like self harm. Marsha Linehan (who started it, which you prob know) lives here in Seattle, and she is amazing. I am working with one of her "disciples" now that she trained. Have a lot of faith in him, he's amazing. They are great b/c they know how to deal with intense emotions. I use a lot of the techniques I learned every day, but def need to get into more intense therapy again, which is what I'm doing. Going to wipe out my savings, but I felt like it was either that or I was going to off myself, so opted for that.If you suspect you have BPD, then the only real tried and true treatment is DBT. Have you had therapy in the past and if not is this something you would consider moving forward?
