"Chapman is a masterful DBT clinician and teacher who describes how to structure phone coaching calls, effectively orient the client to them, and utilize DBT strategies during calls. He provides fabulous instructions for coaching the emotionally dysregulated and suicidal individual to bring about lasting change, with an emphasis on strengthening and generalizing behavioral skills in difficult situations. The dialogues with patients quoted in every chapter are worth the price of the book on their own! This how-to guide fills a significant gap in the DBT literature, and is entirely consistent with expert recommendations for the treatment of suicidal clients."--Charles R. Swenson, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School
"In the first book devoted solely to this essential component of DBT, Chapman clearly conveys the principles of phone coaching and provides an incredibly useful, hands-on, practical guide. With great humility, Chapman tackles common concerns and misconceptions head-on and discusses how to avoid or recover from mistakes. DBT novices and experts alike will benefit from the many case examples and rich clinical detail. I will recommend this book to my trainees and colleagues, and it would be a superb supplemental text in graduate courses. I predict this will be one of the most frequently consulted books on DBT--it is destined to become a classic."--Clive J. Robins, PhD, ABPP, Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Psychology and Neuroscience (Emeritus), Duke University-
