The internet is filled with misinformation about BPD, emotion dysregulation, and DBT. Here are resources that we recommend if you are looking to learn more.


This is the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA-BPD).

DBT-Linehan Board of Certification
This is the official site for information about how individuals become certified DBT therapists. It outlines the process and the on-going requirements.
