This is the first comprehensive guide to phone coaching in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)--an integral part of treatment that many clinicians find challenging. What are the principles and goals of phone coaching? What limits should be set? How can a therapist manage suicide risk during a brief call? DBT expert Alexander Chapman addresses these and other critical practical questions in this accessible book. He provides guidelines for coaching core DBT distress tolerance and emotion regulation skills; coaching "dos and don'ts"; and tips for structuring each call's beginning, middle, and end. Featuring many concrete examples, strategies, and model dialogues, the book includes a key chapter on suicide crisis calls.

"The reader is guided to avoid numerous pitfalls in phone coaching, and gains wisdom on critical topics, including handling suicidal crisis calls and using electronic communication such as texting. Chapman makes a clear distinction between phone coaching and therapy. This book will no doubt assist clinicians in delivering comprehensive DBT effectively while balancing their work and personal lives. As Chapman states, many clinicians get that 'deer-in-the-headlights look' when introduced to the notion of phone coaching--but this engaging, motivating, often humorous book makes this mode accessible and achievable."--Jill H. Rathus, PhD, Department of Psychology, Long Island University Post

"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-
