One thought on “DBT & BPD Links

  1. Can anyone please tell me how they felt using DEARMAN for the first time? I am going to meet with my exboyfriend and my Dbt therapist to find it if he wants to make another go of it. He has been coming to see me a lot and I am planning to use DEARMAN to try and work things out. I am too scared to use it on my own and wondered how other people felt using this interpersonal effectiveness skill for thefp first time.
