I have been seeing a p-doc for psychodynamic therapy every week for a few years. He wanted me to also do CBT/DBT. I was in a DBT group for a while, until the schedule began to conflict with my job. Now, for the past year, I have met every two weeks with a social worker who does DBT/CBT. The combination of behavioural therapy and psychodynamnic therapy has been wonderful for me. The behavioural part helps me with practical skills -- mindfulness, meditation, identifying dysfunctional thoughts and reactions. I also still find my weekly therapy sessions worthwhile to deal with meds and to learn how to accept love and deal with feelings of dependency. I consider myself lucky that my insurance will pay for both.
