well mayzee, i am currently working on DBT skills, my therapist is a cognitive behavioral kind, i don't know what kind you are working with, so maybe this info wouldn't help. but i am just working on different kinds of skills that help me cope better with stress, or they are suppossed to anyways. things such as observing how i am feeling, yet not holding onto that feeling, not getting stuck on feeling that way i guess. and learning to be one mindfully in the momemt, whatever moment that is, like if i am eating, i only eat, and pay attention to the sensations of eating. or being in a conversation wholeheartedly. some of this is common sense, but it's kind of different, my t could explain it better i guess.
yeah, i know how a lot of people say that it's good that it's a part of therapy and it SHOULD be a part of therapy, but i don't think of what i am feeling is transference, and my t doesn't think so either, so i kind of hate to hear people say that everyone efeels this way, or a lot of people do, when it seems to belittle what i'm feeling, categorizing it into something that happens and should happen, and putting that nasty word on it: transference. I don't like the word, but that's just my opinion. i can't really give any advice, since i haven't been dealing with it too well either. it makes me smile at times to think of my T, and then other times i want to cry....anyways, yeah i am just working on DBT skills and other skills that a person with borderline personality disorder may work on, because i have a few of the traits, although not as pronounced as some, so my T thought these skills would help me.

good luck :)
