I think it sounds wonderful Dinah!!
I'm reading a really good book right now, that was suggested by my Group Therapy leader.
A Guide to Rational Living by Albert Ellis & Robert A. Harper.
On the back cover it says "By the creators of ....Cognitive Behaviour Therapy & Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT)"
It's quite good. I'm reading it VERY slowly, making sure I understand everything & using my yellow hilighter with absolute IMPUNITY!
She also highly suggested Born to Win by Muriel James & Dorothy Jongeward. It's about TA - Transactional Analysis & was written a long time ago, as was the other one.
And she also highly recommended Emotional Fitness, by Janice Berger, who lives & has a practice not all that far away from where I live.
I bought the above 2 really cheaply at a used book store & also got "Loving What Is", by Byron Katie, which someone here at PB suggested - can't remember who!!
So basically, I have those 4 to read & digest.
I am definitely interested in DBT, from the sounds of it, so when I've finished these, I'll look into it.
What is your experience with it, Dinah?
