It is hard because the 'experts' form something of a closed group...

And with respect to theory... There is the post-traumatic model (which the closed group have allegence to) vs the socio-cognitive model (which the sceptics who consent to treat the disorder have allegence to)...

And with respect to alternatives or variations...

Then you aren't really looking to the 'experts' anymore.

You'd be taking your chances on someone who might not have much experience in treating the disorder...

Which (IMO) is a mixed blessing.

On the upside it does sound like you want the same things:

1) Increased communication
resulting in
2) Being less fragmented.

Communication is hard...
It is scarey...
It can be terrifying...

I reckon...
There could be a value in learning about coping skills BEFORE pushing the communication side of things.
Doing that would give you time to learn to trust your t a bit... And also trust your ability to cope with hard stuff.
Because communication is hard. And if / when what you are hearing is really painful stuff then you need coping strategies in place to be able to deal with that.

I'm struggling a bit at the moment...
But whats helping me cope is all the skills I learned in DBT. About tolerating distress. Accepting it... Distracting from it... Steps I can take towards changing it...

I don't really know what to say.
Except...
That sometimes things take time.
And until you have some trust in your t
Some trust in yourself
Communication probably will be too much...

But I don't know how this is supposed to help...
Sorry.
