DBT Assumption About You

You are doing the best you can.
You want to develop an
authentic quality of life.
You need to do better, try
harder, and be more willing
and motivated to consider
healthy choices ... and
committed to taking action.
You may not have caused all of
your problems, but you need to
take responsibility to resolve
them anyway.
You need to develop healthy
behaviors and explore
choices in all relevant
experiences of your life.
You cannot fail in therapy
if you are willing and committed
to learning and practicing
healthy lifeskills daily.
