This site was written primarily by PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH DBT, not DBT professionals. For this reason, consider the source of any given document. We cannot give advice, but we can talk about our experiences on our DBT journey. In this regard, I hope we can help one another.
If you are in a crisis, please dial 911. The website owner is legally unable to advise.
Do you have children or grandchildren? I recently invented a game to play with my 14-year-old grandson. When he or I stops to use a DBT skill to communicate when we are frustrated with the other person, we take a quarter from the jar. When we don抰, we pay a quarter to the jar. Same goes for giving compliments or insults, self-degredation or 揑 can?statements. The possibility for riches is endless.

I appreciate the response I have received for help with this website. It is gratifying to know that there are so many people who use this site and count on it. I would like to clarify one thing: I am looking for people who want to participate in an overview of the long term future of the site, not just people with technical skills!
If you would like to be a part of the very exciting changes that are occuring to this website, I would like to hear from you. Let me explain. I am putting together historical information about the website, why it started, how it changed and grew to meet the needs of the times and the clients this site has served over the last 17 years.
I have also been working with others to identify key areas of change that would improve the site and specifically how to make those changes occur. Initially, I didn't think it would be a very big deal. Then as I learned more and more, it seemed impossible. In the end, it has simply taken a lot of time and research to learn how THIS website can grow and serve the DBT community in a way that is different than what is currently being done.
When I began in 2001, this was an easier task. There wasn't anything for DBT clients available without payment so anything I did was helpful. It stayed that way for many years. What I had to learn over this year is what changed. How has DBT changed? How is the information about DBT being distributed by others? Do I still have a player in the game? So I had to sort out what I did well, better than others, and what others do so much better than me that there is no use competing. I had to find my niche all over again.
Fortunately, I still do have a player in the game, but it might not be me. It could be me, but if so, I'm going to need some help. Before my traumatic brain injury in 2004, I used to own a business in one of the most competitive markets in the world at that time - SAP Software. Since then, in that business, so much has changed, it would be like showing Leonardi DaVinci plans on a modern jet and asking him if he recognized them. But when I started up the company, I had to make a Business Plan and at the beginning you create an "Executive Summary." It is to tell potential investors who don't have a lot of time the bottom line about your company - numbers and projections, the "big idea" and what it takes to make it go.
What I've worked on here is very similar. A way for those who are interested to peruse figures and dates in charts and tables and a presentation overview of what was, is, and might be. If you like that kind of thing, drop me a line.

I so appreciate the love and support and condolences sent to me by many of you over the passing of my son. Your thoughts and prayers have made a big difference in my life.

BTW: NOAH Says HI! (-:
Abbey Press gave permission to reprint parts of the their Elf Help books. Their size and simplicity is deceiving. They have a lot to say despite their few words and pictures. A real joy to have on hand.
There are several types of flash cards to help remind you of the DBT skills. Recently added are the cards I used as a participant with a way to print your own.
The day-to-day stuff that works with DBT including affirmations, crisis strategies, cognitive distortions and more.

揑 "stumbled" upon your website tonight. I was in crisis mode, felt out of control, felt like I was going to have a relapse. . .my crisis was "over". . .with the help of your amazing website.
I have been in DBT for 12 weeks and have found it really confronting and overwhelming. This site has explained the skills in a much simpler way and helped me to understand them
I came upon your site today when I needed it most. It is such a wonderful place, filled with information, hope, and practical approaches to calming the mind.
I called a suicide crisis center last night and the counselor I spoke to told me about DBT... [I] came across your website... it's extremely helpful.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
