Q and A

Questions And Answers


I use the title, Questions and Answers loosely. Itís really about my responses to emails from people talking about their difficulties with DBT. Since Iím not a professional, I canít give anyone advice that is medically accurate. These are my opinions based on my personal experience with applying the DBT skill to my life. Everyone has their own truth. These answers are about what works for me. Take what you can from it, but donít take it literally.

For the sake of privacy, I have summarized the email questions rather than copy them word-for-word.
