Back in the land of the living (Plus On-line DBT Homework Lessons)

Hi Guys – Sorry I have been AWOL for so long. Following on from my last post, I decide I would come off Escitalopram and in hindsight came off a little too quickly. I halved the dose for nearly two weeks then simply stopped taking it, and the results were horrific. I simply have NEVER […]

Free online DBT course (with marked homework assignments)

I feel like all my prayers have been answered. I am still on a waiting list for DBT through the NHS and have been struggling through the DBT modules on my own, when I come across an online DBT group that not only gives you a weekly DBT lesson by email, they set you homework, […]
