As a person who is in recovery from BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), DBT skills have been the primary element that have helped me to overcome self-sabotaging behaviors and to truly begin to create a life worth living.

I really love these cards. Not only do I think they are fun for playing the card games mentioned above, but I’ve enjoyed going through them to pick random skills to focus and work on. I came across this one. It’s for a skill called “Turtling” and is listed under the Mindfulness skills in the guide. It is described as:
“Turtling: Take care of myself like a turtle. Retreat inside for safety sometimes, go slow and methodical, protect myself but don’t be aggressive, be adaptive in a variety of situations, use my hard outer shell to let other’s judgments roll off my back and get myself back in balance persistently.” (Dr. Moonshine, DBT in Life Playing Cards Definitions and Instructions)
There were several other skills that I noticed, and I’m excited to become familiar with them.
Please take a moment to let me know:
- What would be helpful to see or know about the games?
- What do you think of practicing DBT Skills using games?
- Any questions or comments you may have.
