> I get real worried because its kind of drilled into us that babble is a place for support and education. It isnt necessarily a place to express yourself and its not a place to do therapy. I worry that doing what my T suggested would be crossing the line and using babble for something its not meant to be.

Thanks for keeping the line in mind, but it's fine to use Babble for new interpersonal skills. For example, some excerpts from a survey:

> Babble is a place to test out stronger reactions ... to learn about my own methods of interaction (what works, what doesn't work, what I should stop / start / do more of).

> Babble gives me the opportunity to practice responding rather than reacting to others. ... we have the opportunity to really think about our posts before hitting 'submit.'
> I avoid conflict in the real world because I associate it with physical violence and verbal abuse. But physical violence and verbal abuse aren't things that I have to worry about with Babble so I guess it is a relatively safe setting for me to get some exposure to conflict and hopefully learn some skills around conflict resolution.
