> I'm impressed that you found DBT online! How can he say that you are lazy??????

Because I did it when I should have been working? (grin)

I think for the moment, I'll try using the skills manual without the online skills trainer. The trouble is that my therapist isn't trained in it, so I probably know as much as he does.

If he's willing, I think it would be a good idea to have him help me interpret the skills and think of ways to apply them. Maybe even to assess my abilities at different things. But not to routinely check the diary card or to ask how I'm doing in a routine way. I think that would make him too much one of the father/husband/boss people in my life. He already tread over that line this week. I don't take it well. And heaven help him if he suggests distress tolerance skills when he's the one who's upset me. No, way too much conflict of interest going if he gets too involved with the DBT. He'd only be able to do it from the didactic side, and stay out of the evaluation side.

I'm trying to figure out if it's good or not that I can guess my reactions with reasonable accuracy. I think it must be bad, because it means I'm not willing to change them. Hmmmm.....
