@Laura_I I do hear it’s quite amazing. There’s no one anywhere near me that does it (I’m in the land of bad CBT practitioners) but if you can find someone nearby you who does AEDP it might be way worth it to look into it!

@madisonlmc Yeah not a CBT fan. Or any behavioural therapy I think.

It's not my behavior that needs help, it's my trauma

CBT 

@Laura_I a prof of mine made a good point about how he wonders if we’ve been getting it wrong when it comes to why CBT “works” for some and not for others, but that’s too long discussing to have here. Regardless, I’m also not a huge fan at all of pure CBT and have a lot of issues with it as a stand-alone type of therapy and how it’s intertwined so much with insurance companies and easily quantifiable short term treatment outcomes...just feels sorta grimey to me

CBT, behavior, trauma 

@Laura_I
with that, I think my behavior is most definitely influenced and intertwined with my trauma, and that’s there’s no true way to separate the two, but the key to me is that if I ignore my trauma forever and only stare at my behavior I’m probably just going to get better at enforcing my shame.

CBT, behavior, trauma 

@madisonlmc Yeah, I think behavior is just more often the effect, not the cause. And it makes a lot more sense to treat the cause
