    Thanks for posting this. Is there some context here? Normally therapists don’t post sessions online for obvious reasons. Does this have something to do with him being male?

    how ironic. I watched this video last night. To me, the man makes sense and is suffering badly and only wants to try and justify his behaviours. He is a hurt man and I see no wrong in him. I can see both sides. Many people take one and can’t see both sides. That is wrong.

    good point, Is the point of this video purely to laugh at and ridicule the male ‘personality disordered’ patient?

    I don’t know the “why” behind the posting of the video. It’s very old. Looks like it’s from the 1990’s. I believe the “context” is to try to sell therapists longer videos of Linehan working with clients (usually grad students playing clients, like Bateman’s videos). The link in the description of the video goes here: https://www.psychotherapy.net/video/dialectical-behavior-therapy-linehan which offers for sale. The client is played by an actor BTW.
