A great complement to a DBT Skills Class

S someone do has been being treated in DBT for over a year, I find this podcast extremely helpful. It goes further on the skills, helps me generalize them more and find appropriate applications of them more than just taking a DBT class has. I only wish he hadn’t stopped as there are topics I would have loved his perspective on, like opposite action.

Words of Wisdom

I’m so grateful I found this podcast with Charlie and Nicole. I’m working my way through all of them. Whether you know a lot about DBT or are new to the topic, this podcast is a gift. You can learn about DBT from Dr. Charlie Swenson, a master therapist. His conversations and role plays with Nicole enrich the learning. I especially loved the role the “session” when Nicole played a patient struggling with narcissism. Thank you for this amazing opportunity to learn and grow.

Bring back Nicole!

I’m so disappointed that Nicole is not present in recent episodes. Her warm intelligence and compassion are missed. She brought the show to life.
