I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), PTSD, Major Depression and Anxiety. I took Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in 1998 and graduate in 2000 at Phoenix Interfaith Counseling. I was so grateful I took that class. It help me with impulsive cutting, how to set boundaries, Interpersonal Effectiveness just to name a few. It took me a year and half to learn it.
I’m so grateful for Shirley S for being patient, caring and able to talk to me when needed. I don’t know where I’d be if I did not take DBT. The class save my life. I blessed those who help me like Millie, and Mary. We had group after we learn the DBT.
Those of you who have BPD I would suggest taking DBT class and if you don’t understand it have your therapist help you understand. They are really caring people at PIC. After learning the DBT I use it everyday for situations and prevent myself from self harming.
