Unless you’re borderline.Avoid all DBT. It’s a cult.
If not? I sooooo agree with you. It’s like people have never heard of “self control” before. To be fair? I guess a lot of people never have. But ADHD is almost entirely about self-control, OCD about re-establishing it. Instead of self control over this one eensy teensy little facet of emotion&action.
So? It’s gold standard for Borderline Personality Disorder (what it was invented for).
And -apparently?- mind boggling for neurotypical people who just automagically pick shit up.
But it’s legos & washing erasers for people who HAVE TO emotionally monitor and regulate themselves for all of the 96% of “everything” that borderline doesn’t encompass.
Which makes sense that it helps soooo many neurotypical people who have developed PTSD. As self-control? Has always been innate. Instead of hard acquired.
But for those of us who have never been neurotypical? Omfg Self control over this ONE teeeeeny tiny aspect of life?!? Bwaaahahaha.
