This volume is the authoritative presentation of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Marsha M. Linehan's comprehensive, integrated approach to treating individuals with BPD. DBT was the first psychotherapy shown in controlled trials to be effective with BPD. It has since been adapted and tested for a wide range of other difficult-to-treat disorders involving emotion dysregulation. While focusing on BPD, this book is essential reading for clinicians delivering DBT to any clients with complex, multiple problems. Companion volumes: The latest developments in DBT skills training, together with essential materials for teaching the full range of mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills, are presented in Linehan's "DBT(R) Skills Training Manual, Second Edition," and "DBT(R) Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets, Second Edition." Also available: Linehan's instructive skills training videos for clients--"Crisis Survival Skills: Part One, Crisis Survival Skills: Part Two," "From Suffering to Freedom," "This One Moment," and "Opposite Action." Plus related DBT videos: "DBT at a Glance: An Introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy," "DBT at a Glance: The Role of the Psychiatrist on the DBT Team," and "Getting a New Client Connected to DBT (Complete Series)."Read Less

New in new dust jacket. The two volumes in Dr. Linehan's program cover the full range of borderline conditions. In her far-reaching new text, Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, Linehan describes in persuasive clinical detail the development and implementation of DBT. Because the behavioral skills training element of her program is so critical for working with borderline individuals, the companion Skills Training Manual presents session-by-session guidelines for imparting and integrating into the patient's repertoire four key psychosocial skills notably absent in borderlines. A previous version of this manual has been successfully used in psychiatric hospitals, community health centers, and other settings. Together, the two pieces add up to new promise for respectful, sustained, effective work with this growing patient group. Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder: For the average clinician, clinic, or inpatient facility, individuals with borderline personality disorder often represent the most difficult and insoluble cases. Now, set against the backdrop of intense patient pain, and intense frustration (and often anger) on the part of therapists enlisted to help, comes unexpected new hope in the form of Marsha Linehan's integrative, biosocial approach to borderlines, which she calls Dialectical Behavior Therapy. At once firmly rooted in cognitive-behavioral strategies for change and specifically targeted at the cluster of behavioral problems of most immediate concern (the suicidal and other therapy-interfering behaviors), this is the only approach to date which has been empirically verified in controlled clinical studies. And it is the only approach which simultaneously addresses the BPD's profound skills deficits, characteristic dichotomous thought and behavior patterns, and extreme relationship needs. Touching on everything from how to decrease post-traumatic stress-related behaviors to how to handle the between-session phone call, from how to begin and end sessions to how to avert a suicide, Linehan's outstanding new text provides genuine hope for a population that has until now challenged clinicians of every orientation.
