Even if all that is true, and believe me I'm not doubting it, there is still a lot of good to be had in CBT and DBT. I have willingly admitted that I hate CBT when it is rigidly applied. It makes me feel like a trained seal.
However, when you get a therapist who's good enough to convey the information in a non-didactic conversational style, it can change your whole way of looking at things. And yes, sometimes you do need to eat your vegetables. But it's your own health that's hurt by itif you don't. A good therapist helps you see the benefits of eating your vegetables and recognizes that it's your choice whether to do it or not.
