They cancelled DBT group because of Covid-19

I just called to make sure my ride was coming and they said group was cancelled for awhile due to Covid. Why? We sit 6 feet apart and wear masks. I hate Covid.

I need DBT as well because I have borderline tendencies and I heard it’s the no 1 therapy for it.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, it basically teaches you to get control of your emotions I think. It’s for borderlines but it’s the only group we have so all kinds of people go.

The place I go to for mental health treatment is doing group therapy online so they don’t have to cancel the groups.

Interesting.

Well, I hate that it was cancelled.

Maybe they’ll set up something on Zoom for the next one.

Do you find DBT helpful?

I have a spiral-bound book with DBT worksheets and exercises that look helpful, but I haven’t really had the chance to dive into them yet.

I think it’s interesting that the psychologist who created DBT was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was a young woman.

I think she actually has borderline.

I think you’re right. I also think it’s pretty neat that she struggled with the same issues that the therapy she created is meant to help.

I only went to group a few times. I was still getting into it when they cancelled it. It seemed good though. All sort of basic control your emotions kind of stuff. I liked it. That’s interesting about the creator, I didn’t know that.
