> What did you think was strange about it? I think I'm going to find it "strange," too. From what I've read of the manual that my T has photocopied for me.

Linehan and her colleagues developed it partly to overcome some of the problems w/ CBT, but it seems to have a completely different approach--CBT is very direct and logical, and there's an obvious point to each element of it. I didn't understand the point of some of Linehan's exercises, and what they are supposed to do to help you.

What really appealed to me was the stuff about emotion dysregulation--I don't think CBT deals with this at all--and the invalidating environment.

I borrowed the book and don't have it anymore, so I can't be any more specific.
