Being a therapist is extremely rewarding—and extraordinarily challenging. As a therapist, you have the privilege of helping clients navigate some of the most difficult aspects of their lives. When you watch someone transform during this process, and when you see new possibilities open up in your client’s life because of the work you do together, you have a reason to go into the clinic the next day.
But the difficult cases can be devastating. This is especially true when you are treating clients who are emotionally dysregulated, or have other significant mental health challenges—including borderline personality disorder (BPD), mood disorders, or suicidal ideation. These clients often seek to avoid negative emotions, struggle with interpersonal relationships, and act out in ways that alienate themselves from friends and family. They may see themselves and others in extreme terms—either good or bad. And all of these factors can lead to clients being reluctant to fully engage in therapy.
The good news is that there is a powerful treatment method to help these clients understand and face difficult emotions, overcome “black-and-white thinking,” build better relationships, and thrive. Originally developed for the treatment of BPD, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), is a proven-effective treatment for mental health conditions rooted in intense and difficult-to-manage emotions.
Like any evidence-based treatment method, you may experience challenges implementing DBT effectively—either due to client resistance, your own mental roadblocks, or difficulty putting theory into practice. To help, we’ve gathered leading experts in DBT to teach you techniques, strategies, and microskills you can use in session to overcome treatment barriers and help your clients create lasting positive change.
From the premier publisher of psychology and self-help, this essential collection of DBT resources offers everything you need to help your clients:
- Stay present in the moment
