What is this book, and what is DBT? I live in the UK. It sounds like something which might be good for me!

I think I'm living with Tabitha's mother... I share with friends and one of them decided she would try to help me be a better person to "change" me, tells me what I'm thinking and feeling... what I should do... etc. Undermined is not strong enough for how I'm feeling!!!!!! Unfortunately she's also my landlady so I can't tell her to go to **** but it makes every day a real ordeal with her criticism, inability to really listen, and me never entirely sure if I'm doing something wrong or not.... it wasn't until I got into a (brief) relationship with a guy who accepted me as I am, that it really hit home how much she eats away at my self esteem and confidence and makes me feel abnormal!!

anyway enough rambling... would be happy to get some info on this book!!!!

> I was looking at Martha Linehan's DBT handbook today, at "Handout 6", a description of options for figuring out when to say no (or conversely, to ask for something), how strongly, and how to persist. E-mail me if you'd like more ... buying the book meant I could photocopy for handouts (it's a therapist's guide) but I don't think I can put this on the 'net.
