I know you didn't. I'm speculating on my own, though I agree with your oppinion that CBT (or perhaps
DBT) is ideally applied to "maladaptive attitutes, behaviors, etc." Since I have displayed those
could I fit into that catagory (personality disorder), and if so, what does it mean? I'm probably
experiencing what I have heard many "100-level" psych. students experience: As they are introduced to
the concepts of abnormal psychology, they recogize a number of symptoms in themselves and start putting
themselves with varying degrees of seriousness into inappropriate diagnostic catagories.
