Default Opinions need for Dialectical Behavior Therapy

https://www.psychologytoday.com/ther...havior-therapy

Have you tried it? Does it work? If you take it as a group class, is that more effective than as a single therapy session with a therapist? How has it helped you? I'm thinking of trying this. I've tried CBT before and that was very helpful but it wasn't exactly what I needed. Just curious to hear from people who've tried DBT. Thanks.

People say it works for bipolar disorder. I don't see how that can be true.

I'm just wondering if you can do DBT even if you don't have a diagnosis.

I do DBT for borderline and bipolar. It is making as huge difference in my life. It changes the way I see things and is making me more aware of my behaviors.

Thanks for responding TheSadGirl. Did you take the adult class or just work one-on-one with a therapist?

I'm curious to try it, although I don't have a mental illness diagnosis. Does anxiety make me eligible, I wonder?

I'm currently learning about DBT. I think it's really helpful so far, and I want to join a therapy group for it. My therapist told me it could help anybody.

Hi Starrysky thanks for posting in my thread about DBT. Do you think you'll try it? I think it could help me with my anxiety, but I'm not sure if I qualify for the services for it. I'll have to call the center here that offers it, this week, to find out. I hope your therapist is right!

I do individual therapy and opted out of group. I also have a borderline DBT workbook that I'm going through. My therapist said it could replace group therapy.

If CBT didn't work will DBT work?
