Hi Heather, thanks so much for your feedback. I absolutely agree with you; to be honest I much prefer Linehan's model of illness, as its grounded in cognitive science and behaviourism, which is more measurable in terms of data. As someone who got better due to DBT, I can vouch for it's effectiveness. In fact Linehan is a hero of mine. A few months ago I wrote an article on the origins of DBT, and her story https://medium.com/invisible-illness/can-dbt-save-your-life-3e39992ff951?source=friends_link&sk=7bdc1cf1632d4dbf30ff7e8322e486f5

When I write about BPD, I tend to explore it from all angles and theories. This is, I hope, will give readers the ability to take what's helpful and disregard the rest. Glad you found it interesting
