DId I say they were all wrong ? Though Dissociation is a description, more than a diagnosis. If you look even deeper, to my surprize, studies are showing CBT as useful in a larger range of conditions, even as helpful for some symptoms in schizophrenia. Obviously the relaionship with a caring therapist is very important -- and if you're comfortable with him now --- then you DO have at least some feelings, and that;s good.
In people with a special talent for dissociation, some forms of therapy definitely do make them worse, mainly analytic forms, and those which concentrate on the dissociation and on archeology, rather than on finding and building on the individuals areas of strength
