Marsha Linehan, founder of one of the most powerful therapeutic interventions, Dialectal Behavior Therapy, shared the history of her suffering last week. The story is too powerful to simply recap here or to offer any interpretations. We can only say that Dr. Linehan has brought a new level of integrity and beauty to the meaning of being a therapist, specifically a therapist who has the courage to show how we can grow from our wounds.
Please read her story here. And her sharing in the video here is deeply moving.
