DBT Isn't for Everyone

January 2, 2020

 

This isn't a post with DBT tips or a post about blaming someone who either tried DBT or who checks it out and immediately turns the other way.  This is a post to say DBT isn't a cure-all.  It's not for everyone. 

 

 Most online posts I see for people struggling with symptoms of BPD is filled with "have you tried DBT?" or "Have you heard of DBT?."

 

As a DBT therapist I am here to tell you - DBT isn't for everyone and if you find this post and wonder why it didn't work for you I am here to tell you it's not you. It's not a cure-all, it's not for everyone with a specific diagnosis, if it didn't work for you- that is okay!  There are so many other types of treatment and others that are evidence-based to treat BPD.

 

These include Schema Therapy and Mentalization-based therapy (MBT).  Medication can help with many mental health symptoms, talk therapy with a professional can be very beneficial, having a strong healthy support system is life changing.  If DBT didn't work for you, there are other options and DBT (if you decided) will always be there.
