I’m really just beginning to get into DBT. I purchased a workbook years ago but did not do any work with it.
I got it out recently because it seems to correlate to a lot of things I’m working on in therapy now. What I’ve looked at so far has really resonated with me and I think it can help me.
I have Asperger’s syndrome, which seems to share a lot in common with Borderline Personality Disorder, like a tendency toward all or nothing, black or white thinking. Also, a lot of social skills do not come as naturally to me as someone who is not on the spectrum. I have PTSD and high anxiety as well. I have not been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but my biology makes me vulnerable to psychosis, which I have experienced a few times. I had a serious psychotic break in 2014, which is what brought me to this website.
I hope you find some success with DBT with your new therapist.
