Okay, things to do before July 10

1. Obtain a copy of the book "Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder" if possible.

2. Read pages 59-61 (and any of the beginning that interests you). The first "session" as described in the book begins on page 59 and is an orientation. Not all of what's there will apply to this format, but it describes different types of behavioral patterns and how the different skills can help. As an introduction, it might be helpful for each of us to say a few words about what you hope to get out of this process, if there are any specific problems or issues you want to pay special attention to, or any other comments or feedback. I think we could cover that with allowing just a few days, and move to beginning the core mindfulness skills module right away.

3. Select a diary card format (if you choose) and begin filling it out. If you do the diary cards, you will do one each week. I think I'd prefer to do this on my own, and to share aspects of it when I wish versus posting it anywhere. What do others think?

4. Start reading Chapter 7, Core mindfulness skills (pages 63-69). I'll make a post to introduce this topic (for those who don't have the book) and start a discussion about it. There are no homework assignments for the module, but there are activities to try, and we can do these and post our reactions.

5. Download or view from book the three mindfulness handouts. Post any questions or comments you have about them in the discussion thread (coming soon).

Does this work for everyone? Feedback welcome. I'm not sure what issues might still be up in the air, except maybe how to link threads and such. But I'll check back in and do a bit more later.

I'm excited about this! :)
