Episode 20 – DBT with Amanda Smith - That B Word: Bipolar | Borderline | Beautiful
2 days ago
In this week’s episode:
Well, I couldn’t find any news that interested me this week, so I ramble on for a bit about the new movie “Unsane”. Have you seen it? Let me know what you think.
My guest this week is Amanda Smith, LCSW. She is the author of https://www.amazon.com/Dialectical-Behavior-Therapy-Wellness-Planner/dp/1936268868/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521504739&sr=8-1&keywords=dialectical+wellness+planner+amanda+smith. She shares some great information on what DBT is, how it’s practiced, and how to find a therapist who is trained in the technique.
On that note, I recommend a few books on mindfulness. The first, Coming To Our Senses by Jon Kabat Zinn, is a hefty tome that is worth it’s weight in knowledge. The second, The Miracle of Mindfulness, is a thin volume that takes no time to read but will stick with you long after you’ve read it.
I’ve also had an update from listener Brittany of Episode 15 (not 17, like I say in the podcast). She had to take down her previous blog, but has a new one up at http://thebipolarphoenixdawn.blogspot.com/. She also has an instagram at The_bipolar_phoenix_dawn.
I leave you with a little teaser of an upcoming episode. Enjoy!
See you next week!
