Filled with vivid clinical vignettes and step-by-step descriptions, this book demonstrates the nuts and bolts of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). DBT is expressly designed for--and shown to be effective with--clients with serious, multiple problems and a history of treatment failure. The book provides an accessible introduction to DBT while enabling therapists of any orientation to integrate elements of this evidence-based approach into their work with emotionally dysregulated clients. Experienced DBT clinician and trainer Kelly Koerner clearly explains how to formulate individual cases; prioritize treatment goals; and implement a skillfully orchestrated blend of behavioral change strategies, validation strategies, and dialectical strategies.

See also Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Clinical Practice: Applications across Disorders and Settings, edited by Linda A. Dimeff and Kelly Koerner, which presents exemplary DBT programs for specific clinical problems and populations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This superb book finds the true dialectic between sophisticated writing and a 'how-to' approach. It is a 'must' for the shelves of every DBT therapist and those interested in the approach. Koerner is to be commended for this major contribution to the field."--Perry D. Hoffman, PhD, President, National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder

"An incredibly useful book showing you how to work with difficult-to-treat clients. The presentation of DBT is crystal clear and highly practical, including systematic guidelines and concrete examples of actual interactions. I recommend this book to students and to new and advanced mental health practitioners, who will all encounter emotionally dysregulated clients."--Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Psychology, York University, Canada

"A beautifully written, engaging description of emotional dysregulation and its treatment through DBT. The book is richly illustrated with case material and extensive client-therapist dialogues that truly demonstrate DBT in action."--Andrew Christensen, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

"Koerner, an expert DBT therapist, has written a hands-on, clinically rich work that provides guidelines for when and how to apply DBT strategies for complex cases. The material is accessible to both experienced clinicians and therapists in training. This book is an invaluable guide and a handy tool kit for working with patients with pervasive emotion dysregulation."--Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychology, Boston University
