Many of you know that after many years of hard work, I recently graduated from DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). I had lots of questions within me, including “What comes next on the path of recovery?”
Shortly after I graduated, I received an intriguing email from Amanda Smith, creator of the psychoeducational daily email My Dialectical Life, to which I subscribe. She’s starting a new endeavor, called “30 Days of Mentalizating.” I immediately signed up to be a part of the pilot group that starts in June, as did many of my readers when I shared the information on my Facebook page.
I asked Amanda to share a bit more about why she is doing this program and what we can expect to gain from it. Here is her guest post. I look forward to connecting with others who sign up for this program to discuss how it’s going and what we are learning.
It can be challenging to know what to do after DBT, and I know that I’m not the only one who wants to continue to grow so that I really can keep moving forward in recovery. I’m ready for new challenges, and I bet that so are you!
MBT is therapy that can help us to close the gap in helping us to understand ourselves and others. It’s about keeping the “mind in mind” and may help us to create more meaningful and sustaining relationships. For me, that’s definitely a part of a life worth living.
activities each week that will use things like painting, music, photography, and video to help us connect with our emotions and thoughts in a new way.
