Right behind them were Geraldine, my Peruvian daughter, and her husband, Nate, with whom I have lived ever since they were married.

She is also working to develop effective models for transferring science-based treatments to the clinical community.It was a profound revelation for me to understand that I wasn’t damaged, I just lacked skills and I thought, “Skills I can learn! Linehan shows, in Building a Life Worth Living, how the principles of DBT really work—and how, using her life skills and techniques, people can build lives worth living.

Everything in Marsha Linehan’s life and remarkable memoir uncovers the dark—the hell of the unhappy self and the hell of inadequate help—and brings us into the light, with humor and detail in describing her grappling and growth, and her courage and vision of how to create a treatment for even the most unhappy of us. Over the years, DBT had saved the lives of countless people fighting depression and suicidal thoughts, but Linehan had never revealed that her pioneering work was inspired by her own desperate struggles as a young woman. It is a story that reinforces, for me, that with effort our negative life experiences can be turned into something good even when we think it is impossible! From a behavioral perspective I can see why Marsha dedicates so much to DBT given the immense positive reinforcement she’s received from its development overall, and at the same time I wanted a bit more development from other areas (e. I knew that my sister, Aline, would be there, and I had especially wanted my brothers, John, Earl, Marston, and Mike, to be there, but I wasn't sure Aline would be able to get them to come.I have done many hard things in my life, most prominent of which was having to come to terms with a totally unexpected complete and devastating breakdown of me, of who I was in the world, which you will get a glimpse of shortly. Extremely smart, very quick, and not reluctant to give her opinion and to say when things didn’t make sense or weren’t supported by logic or data. In the 1980s, she achieved a breakthrough when she developed Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, a therapeutic approach that combines acceptance of the self and ways to change. I also appreciated her honesty about her academic experiences, such as the bias she faced from psychoanalytic folks as well as the sexism she fought during her journey to develop DBT. Unfortunately, living in a neurotypical world means it can also be a source of incredible alienation and pain.

He was thrilled, until I told him I wanted to give the talk in one of the large rooms, because I knew it would draw a big audience. It's like looking at the night sky in the city, where you see points of light from planets and stars here and there, but mostly it is unbroken blackness.The four simple principles DBT is based on include mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and regulation of emotions. She vowed to learn about her condition as a teen, and fight to make sure others would not go through her version of ‘hell’. Linehan included mindfulness as a key component in therapy treatment, along with original and specific life-skill techniques. Linehan ably guides readers along her roller-coaster life as she conquers the male-dominated world of academia while hiding her physical and emotional scars.
