gcc922 Posted August 5, 2008 Report Share Posted August 5, 2008 (edited) Hello,After struggling with clinical depression for about 25 years and trying cognitive therapy and various meds with little lasting success, I may soon be starting DBT. However DBT is used to treat people with borderline personality disorder, which I haven't been diagnosed with and as far as I can tell don't have. Does anyone know if DBT is used often for the treatment of clinical depression? I feel my depression is more existential in nature, but existential therapists are apparently few and far between, so maybe DBT is an alternative? I'll be asking my doctor more questions about this, but thought I'd get a "second opinion" here.Thanks! Edited August 5, 2008 by gcc922 and a grammatical error!
