Thanks for the responses. :)

Hm, well, my T isn't a CBT therapist. She's a clinical social worker who practices psychotherapy...I don't really think she's "into" any one method over another. She has tried to incoroporate some DBT and has tried to get me to do outside DBT work (I tried a few groups/treatments, but ultimately refused to continue, based on my own opinions of DBT). She's also a Buddhist and has tried to incorporate some meditation/mindfulness into sessions also, but like most else she hasn't stayed with it past 1 or 2 sessions. She's never really mentioned CBT by name at all, and she doesn't seem to overly focus on my negative thought patterns (I have many, and she knows this, especially concerning her perceptions of me, but other than telling me to try not to know what she's thinking, she hasn't done much to help me fight my negative thoughts either).

I know I should / could probably either push issues I want to keep talking about, or ask her about them, etc, but I know myself, and I probably wouldn't be able to do either. I'm just trying to figure out what we *are* doing in therapy, because it doesn't seem like much (I know most of it is my fault, because I can't engage or open up with her like I'm supposed to, but at the same time I think that would be all the more reason for her to grab onto the few things I do manage to bring up.

Oh well.

Thanks everyone.
