From Marsha M. Linehan - the developer of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) - this comprehensive resource provides vital tools for implementing DBT skills training. The teaching notes and reproducible handouts and worksheets used for over two decades by hundreds of thousands of practitioners have been significantly revised and expanded to reflect important research and clinical advances.

The book gives complete instructions for orienting individuals with a wide range of problems to DBT and teaching them mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills. Handouts and worksheets are not included in the book; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print all the handouts and worksheets discussed in a convenient 8 1/2 x 11 size.

First edition was entitled Skills Training Manual for Treating the Borderline Personality Disorder.

New to This Edition:

* Handouts and worksheets (available online and in the companion volume) have been completely revised and dozens more added - over 225 in all.

* Each module has been expanded with additional skills.

* Multiple alternative worksheets to tailor treatment to each client.

* More extensive teaching notes, with numerous clinical examples.

* Curricula for running skills training groups of different durations and with specific populations (such as adolescents and clients with substance use problems).

* Available separately: DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets: Second Edition
