For the average clinician, individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) often represent the most challenging, seemingly insoluble cases. This volume is the authoritative presentation of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Marsha M. Linehan's comprehensive, integrated approach to treating individuals with BPD. DBT was the first psychotherapy shown in controlled trials to be effective with BPD. It has since been adapted and tested for a wide range of other difficult-to-treat disorders involving emotion dysregulation. While focusing on BPD, this book is essential reading for clinicians delivering DBT to any clients with complex, multiple problems.

Companion volumes: The latest developments in DBT skills training, together with essential materials for teaching the full range of mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills, are presented in Linehan's DBT Skills Training Manual, Second Edition, and DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets, Second Edition. Also available: Linehan's instructive skills training videos for clients--Crisis Survival Skills: Part One, Crisis Survival Skills: Part Two, From Suffering to Freedom, This One Moment, and Opposite Action.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The bible of DBT. Over two decades later, Linehan's comprehensive treatment manual still stands without peer as the complete and lucid introduction to DBT as well as the in-depth text for the advanced practitioner. DBT's skills are effective and potent if delivered in the context of the theory, principles, protocols, and strategies of the treatment, all of which are presented in this book. It is essential reading for therapists delivering the significantly upgraded skills in DBT Skills Training Manual, Second Edition."--Charles R. Swenson, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts School of Medicine

"Every once in a very long while in our field, a clinical innovation is introduced that profoundly improves patient care. Marsha Linehan's development of a cognitive-behavioral approach to borderline personality disorder is such a rare innovation....Her techniques are clear, teachable, and learnable, and make good common sense to the therapist and the patient. Dr. Linehan's methods have greatly improved my treatment of borderline individuals and my teaching of others in how best to understand and treat these patients.''--Allen Frances, MD

"Marsha Linehan's tremendously in-depth and informative book and its companion skills-training manual offer a needed guide to the cognitive-behavioral treatment of borderline personality disorder....Her method has become so widely used by clinicians that the experts in psychosocial treatments consider it one of the best....Marsha Linehan's methods are highly eclectic because they are empirically based; they have been fashioned to fit what works best for borderline patients."--Lester Luborsky, PhD

"Linehan is one of our most creative and articulate clinicians....As a true scientist-professional, she has not only been innovating in the treatment of one of the most daunting of disorders--borderline personality--but has successfully subjected her ideas to controlled empirical scrutiny."--Gerald Davison, PhD, University of Southern California

"Dr. Linehan's approach is sensible, pragmatic, and effective. Most importantly, it offers the therapist a humane and sensitive perspective on persons with Borderline Personality Disorder. In short, it treats both the therapist and the client in a fashion that produces results."--Mark Ciocca, PhD, Central New Hampshire Community Mental Health Center

- We highly recommend this text and its companion training manual.... --Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, 5/16/1993ff ...represents a gold standard for treatment of this diagnostic category. --Behaviour Research and Therapy, 5/16/1993ff It is the most exacting and well thought out treatment plan I have ever seen written for any disorder....I have tried to find shortcomings with this book. I can find none. It is one of the best pieces of clinical work ever written. No matter what your clinical or research focus of interest, you will gain immensely from reading Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. --Journal of Family Violence, 5/16/1993
