I agree entirely, at least over here, DBT bitesize looks like its saving the NHS money, but in the long run, leads to poorer outcomes. I also agree with Jung, what he said about being a ‘wounded healer’

‘As a doctor I constantly have to ask myself what kind of message
the patient is bringing me. What does he mean to me? If he means nothing, I have no point of attack. The doctor is effective only when
he himself is affected. “Only the wounded physician heals.” But
when the doctor wears his personality like a coat of armor, he has
no effect.’
