Judi's Musings on DBT and other topics

Marsha Linehan - NY Times Article

     If you have not already read it, please don't miss the article about Marsha Linehan on the front page of  today's New York Times.  I am awed by Linehan's courage in revealing so much about her own struggles with mental illness. Her revelations have already, in just this one day, inspired hope in so many people.  Several patients have already said that knowing what was behind the development of DBT has already increased their trust in this form of treatment. Knowing what the  creator of DBT has gone through in her own life has increased their own motivation to do the difficult work needed in order to heal. 
     I applaud Marsha for sharing of herself in this way, for her strength in accepting her own issues and for the validation she has given to so many people who are still struggling. The commitment she has to help others that is so evident in her research, is even more evident in her self revelations today.
     Thank you Dr. Linehan.
