Rigorously field-tested by on-the-ground clinicians, this guidebook provides an easy-to-use, evidence-based summary of using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to treat emotional disorders, or dysregulated affect. DBT is a type of therapy that weaves together the need for behavior change (via cognitive behavior therapy) and yet acceptance of a client's problems and troubled thoughts. This concise guide lays out the basics of DBT so any clinician can implement it. Self-questionnaires, case studies, role play transcripts, diagrams, exercises, and worksheets make it easy for front-line case workers and therapists of all kinds to learn the fundamentals of this treatment modality and put it to use immediately.
