    It was so refreshing to hear someone emphasizing the necessity of a sophisticated evidence based eclectic approach to psychotherapy practice. As most of us in the trenches have known for decades "one size don't fit all."
    I'm curious what you think about DBT as necessarily being the treatment of choice for Borderline Personality Disorder. I work along side some very talented colleagues who work as a team exclusively with this population following the weekly group and individual therapy DBT model with a commitment of one year and they do seem to have some significant success. And yet, I can't help but think that it wouldn't matter so much what you do if you have clients and clinicians who are willing to make that amount of committment of time and energy to overcome persoanl problems.
