About the Book

More Than a Treatment Strategy-A Whole New Direction in Psychotherapy

More than just a new behavioral treatment approach, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) marks a whole new theoretical orientation to the practice of clinical psychology-a rethinking of the causes, descriptions, and treatments of acute mental disorders. This volume offers a detailed explication of DBT in theory and practice. Designed to teach professionals how to use this method in a private-practice setting to treat a range of disorders, this book includes a clear and concise presentation of:

  • DBT and its orientation within the larger context of psychotherapy
  • Dialectic conflict and its role in sustaining mental disorders
  • The DBT coping skill set: meaning-making, mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and strategic behavior skills
  • Practical applications of DBT to a number of acute mental disorders

Includes a weblink to client worksheets and five skills-training slide shows
