“If I had not been referred to DBT Path by my therapist, I don’t believe I would be getting myself back on track right now. I had completely given up on myself and just didn’t care anymore what I looked like or how bad my health was.
I had purchased and read the DBT Trainer’s Manual as per my therapist’s request (way before joining DBT Path) so I could study and learn the skills we were talking about in session, but she realized that seeing her once or twice every two weeks was not sufficient to reinforce the skills, and the DBT group classes she runs are too far away for me to attend.
I could name the skills off the top of my head, but I had no support system to help me use them on a daily basis and get the encouragement and ideas in a group setting.
Covering the PLEASED skills in a group setting has motivated me to try and get back on track health-wise, as now I feel supported in my efforts and I no longer feel like I am fighting this battle alone. Thank you Debbie Corso and my fellow DBT Path classmates and alumni for making this such a fulfilling, worthwhile experience.”
