Hi there, I recently underwent both CBT and DBT and I was asked to leave the DBT group for falling behind, and I was wondering if other people had the same problem. They claimed that in my case, I would frequently fail the multiple-choice questions of what the proper behaviour in a social situation was. I found a lot of the questions very confusing, often with either no 'correct' answers or with multiple 'correct' answers. The guidance counselor claimed that my answers were inappropriate as I would just choose the answer that would avoid confrontation, but I fail to see how that was inappropriate? Also, did anyone else have any difficulty in their peer group with relating to the other members? I was told that if I didn't provide input and just stayed to the sides, I would have to leave this group and sign up again in 3 months. If someone doesn't have anything to add to the table because they lack experience in the subject matter, is it really a bad thing to keep their mouth shut? I was the youngest in the group, and everyone else I was paired up with were middle-aged divorcees. Being a single lesbian with absolutely no experience with hetero marriages just made it seem awkward to be asked what my course of action would be, I felt that I shouldn't be allowed to speak for them as I never felt that way or knew a thing about what it would be like to go through that. I was just trying my best to be as honest as possible. I understand that in some dire situations, you need to make a stand - but the things they were trying to get us to stand up to in our lives seemed... petty? The sort of thing that one just has to deal with and ignore, that other people would look to someone foolishly for attempting to solve a problem that in reality isn't much of a problem. I understand that these are supposed to be 'baby-steps', but by heeding their advice based on what I told them was happening in my workplace it made my job even more hostile and anxiety-driven than before I had undergone the course, and eventually lead to termination from my job. Am I the only person who has experienced this? Is there a better alternative to DBT that isn't so confrontational? Thanks.
