First developed to treat suicidal individuals with borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has since been adapted to a range of settings and populations. This practical book--edited by close collaborators of DBT originator Marsha M. Linehan--presents applications for depression, substance dependence, eating disorders, psychosis, suicidal and assaultive behaviors, and other complex problems. Leading contributors, including Linehan herself, describe how to implement this evidence-based treatment with adults, adolescents, couples and families, and forensic clients. Issues in establishing and maintaining an effective DBT program are also addressed. Over a dozen reproducible worksheets and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2"" x 11"" size.

See also Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy: A Practical Guide, by Kelly Koerner, which demonstrates DBT techniques in detail.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Learning DBT changed my life. DBT concepts and skills take my clinical work to a completely new level. I urge clinicians who are eager to learn more about DBT, and how to adapt it to their clinical setting, to read this book. Contributors are leading DBT practitioners and researchers, and their work in this volume expands and extends this amazing therapy."--Jacqueline B. Persons, PhD, Director, Oakland Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center

"This book is a great resource for anyone and everyone interested in using DBT. Written by accomplished clinician-researchers, it tackles situational pragmatics and the thorny issues of program fidelity. It is well organized, lucidly written, and easily digested. Students of cognitive-behavioral therapies will learn a great deal from this text, as will seasoned clinicians, including those thinking of starting a DBT program. Like DBT itself, the volume is thoughtful, provocative, and oriented toward real-world problem solving."--Robert L. Trestman, PhD, MD, Departments of Medicine and Psychiatry and Director, Center for Correctional Mental Health Services Research, University of Connecticut Health Center

"Dimeff and Koerner have assembled an excellent group of authors to translate DBT theory into real-word practice. Each chapter details the process for using DBT with specific populations and deals with the day-to-day issues confronting practitioners. This is an excellent text for graduate instructors who want to teach evidence-based practices to their students, as well as for clinicians who have longed for practical advice on how to start and maintain a successful DBT program. It is also an excellent guidebook for payors who need to understand what a DBT program should look like and how to assess its value."--George Smart, LICSW, Vice-President of Clinical Operations, Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership

"When I first heard Marsha Linehan speak on DBT, I felt that she had saved me 20 years of figuring things out on my own. This book leads the next wave, bringing the accumulated practical wisdom of several 'first adopters' of DBT who have successfully adapted this principle-based, flexible approach to unique settings and populations. Those wishing to develop services for patients with multiple problems can jump-start their fledgling programs and avoid common pitfalls, all the while staying true to the empirical base of the treatment."--Elizabeth B. Simpson, MD, Director, Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program, Massachusetts Mental Health Center

"DBT is one of the most important advances in clinical practice in the last two decades. What began as a specific intervention for borderline personality disorder is in the process of evolving into a major approach that can be applied to a wide range of patients across multiple settings. This book impressively demonstrates this evolution, providing a resource that will be of value to therapists and students alike. I highly recommend it."--Steven D. Hollon, PhD, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University
