This day has been filled with understanding mindfulness in light of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I understood the difference between reasonable mind, emotional mind (extremes) and the wise mind that sits at the intersection of these extremes. Wise mind as I understand is to come from a deep sense of knowing the truth! It’s definitely a Zen acceptance concept adapted well in therapy.
I really appreciated the importance given to self-validation to be placed in high priority above other validation strategies used in DBT.
Tomorrow we look at behavior therapy side of things along with details on chain analysis!
See you tomorrow!
