Don't know. My psychiatrist, who does psychodynamic therapy, recommends a lot of his patients to do CBT as well. In my case, he wanted me to do DBT, just because of the intensity and overwhelming nature of my suicidality. He finds they complement one another.

Maybe for someone in the midst of intense dynamic therapy working on difficult interpersonal issues, CBT seems superficial and judgmental. But I don't know. I never saw a CBT therapist. But DBT uses some of the same techniques. I found that the combination of dynamic and DBT worked very well for me. I am eternally grateful to both therapists.
