Linehan stresses that in order for DBT to work, there has to be a lot of validation and acceptance. That's what separates it from CBT. I don't think nastiness in manner or facial expressions would fall into the DBT guidelines.

Even the consequences for SI are limited, and not too punitive as she lays them out. You aren't supposed to contact your therapist outside therapy *after* SI, but can before. And you have to spend a fair amount of time going over the minutiae of why and what you felt and alternatives and things. I suppose that is enough to make you sometimes wonder if it's worth SI'ing, which may be the point. But I don't *think* there is supposed to be a lot of anger involved.

Yes, I would definitely mention it. I figure whatever is important enough that I don't want to talk about it, is probably important enough to talk about.
