Hey. I have been wondering for a while now... Whether you might benefit from DBT if you would be able to get into a program.

The reason I say this...

Some DID theorists (e.g., Colin Ross) think that BPD is a trauma disorder like dissociative disorders in general and DID in particular. Some BPD theorists (e.g., Linehan - if my sources are right on this) think that DID (and dissociative disorders in general) are emotion dysregulation disorder like BPD. The point is that theorists seem to agree that there are pronounced similarities between those clusters of disorders and hence... One might expect that similar treatments would be of benefit. (Also worth noting that around 80% of people with DID also meet dx criteria for BPD according to Colin Ross).


I would think that you might well be able to get into a program.

The point of the program is to work (for at least one year) on becoming stabilised. So one can function better in ones daily life. Sounds like that is one of your priorities.

Then once stabilisation has occured... Well... Then would be the time to work on communication / trauma work / etc etc.

You might be able to find a DBT therapist who has some experience with treating DID too.

The focus on stabilisation sounds about perfect for what you are wanting...
