DBT is a behavioral treatment that views emotion dysregulation as being the core of BPD and other disorders. Through regular individual therapy, group sessions, and phone coaching, clients learn more adaptive behaviors for processing their emotions as well as new life skills. DBT also encourages therapists to support each other in their work with challenging clients by participating in consultation teams.
In addition to reviewing standard DBT, this book describes its transtheoretical applications, adapting specific protocols to other treatment approaches. Extensive case material demonstrates how to apply all elements of the DBT process with a wide variety of clients and mental health issues.
