If you would like to contribute to this website, the following types of materials are accepted for consideration
You may submit personal stories about your experience with DBT - how it has changed your life, your process of recovery or examples of your experience with mindfulness exercises of any sort or the Mindfulness Movies from this site or anything that you think would be helpful to people who are considering, beginning, participating in, or graduating from a DBT group.
Inappropriate submissions include anything with graphic details of SI, complaints about groups or therapists or references to your blog or website (see Link Exchanges).
Please keep your stories to about 1,000 words or less and submit electronically via email or via CD with an MS Word file in the postal mail.
Personal essays about using individual DBT skills are highly encouraged. You can talk about your insights in practicing specific skills like radical acceptance or a mindfulness meditation technique.
If your stories are in video format, you can post them on YouTube, send me the link and I will consider posting it.
If you are a DBT Professional with an article you’d like to publish on the site, please attach it to an email with an explanation of why you think it would fit into the site.
Poetry and Artwork
I’ve spent my life using creativity to help me recover and I know that many others are doing the same. Although I haven’t set up a section for it yet, if there is enough interest, I will.
If you have something to say about why you think something should be added or changed in the DBT Community, there is now a section to publish your thoughts, opinions and ideas - DBT in Motion. Try to keep it to about 500 words. Be appropriate. Please consider whether you are making a personal complaint or voicing a concern. I will consider the latter.
