Overview

Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Clinical Practice: Applications across Disorders and Settings by Linda A. Dimeff

First developed to treat suicidal individuals with borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has since been adapted to a range of settings and populations. This practical book--edited by close collaborators of DBT originator Marsha M. Linehan--presents applications for depression, substance dependence, eating disorders, psychosis, suicidal and assaultive behaviors, and other complex problems. Leading contributors, including Linehan herself, describe how to implement this evidence-based treatment with adults, adolescents, couples and families, and forensic clients. Issues in establishing and maintaining an effective DBT program are also addressed. Over a dozen reproducible worksheets and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

See also Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy: A Practical Guide, by Kelly Koerner, which demonstrates DBT techniques in detail.
