and ldquo;DBT skills are useful not only for individuals who suffer from persistent emotion regulation difficulties, but also for individuals in extreme circumstances and people who have ordinary problems. This updated manual provides the and lsquo;flexibility within fidelity and rsquo; in teaching these skills that practitioners and treatment adopters need. New, improved, expanded, and much clearer skills--they and rsquo;re all here! Skills trainers and their clients will benefit from Linehan and her colleagues and rsquo; decades of systematic research and time spent developing, testing, and refining these skills, empowering practitioners to confidently offer multiple ways of understanding and practicing new behavior. Experienced skills trainers will notice the evolved richness and depth, while the explanations and teaching points will provide new trainers and students with an excellent foundation for skills training with both adults and adolescents. Providing a solid evidence-based foundation for core clinical training curricula, this manual and the accompanying volume of handouts and worksheets will be essential across the mental health disciplines. and rdquo;--Andr and eacute; Ivanoff, PhD, Columbia University School of Social Work 'Mental health professionals--whether or not they use DBT as their major therapeutic orientation--will find the second edition of Linehan's skills training manual and its companion volume of client worksheets and handouts invaluable. Skills such as mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance should be part and parcel of any therapist and rsquo;s repertoire. The manual clearly spells out the theoretical basis and rationale for emphasizing these skills and provides a detailed account of how to use the patient material. Especially useful are descriptions of troubleshooting common problems. Therapists are sometimes at a loss to figure out how to help clients with complex problems; these books can significantly help us improve our effectiveness.'--Judith S. Beck, PhD, President, Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy 'Linehan's pioneering work has guided many--myself included--to incorporate mindfulness into compassionate clinical care in a structured format. The second edition of Linehan's DBT skills training manual and the companion volume of handouts and worksheets reflect two additional decades of wisdom and innovation, further bolstering these indispensable resources.'--Zindel V. Segal, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology in Mood Disorders, University of Toronto-Scarborough, Canada 'DBT is a proven evidence-based treatment that combines the best of our science with the knowledge and compassion of Marsha Linehan--an exceptional researcher and clinician whose innovative work has advanced the field and shifted many individuals from lives of suffering to lives of hope. These outstanding second editions offer guidance on how to implement DBT skills training, while providing the tools needed to deliver this state-of-the-art treatment. They will stand as the authoritative guides for teaching DBT skills, partnering with clients to build lives worth living, and helping us to address our national and international priorities of saving millions of lives lost to suicide worldwide. These 'must-have' books belong on the shelves of every clinician and will be valuable course texts.'--Joan Rosenbaum Asarnow, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles 'I used DBT Skills Training Manual, Second Edition, as a text in my graduate course on cognitive-behavioral/empirically supported therapies. The inclusion in one volume of relevant theory, examples, and pragmatic instructions for implementation is most useful for the classroom. It is a state-of-the-art work that is affordable, well designed, and readable, and will be practical for students long after graduate school. I could also see it serving as an instrumental training resource for interns in outpatient, inpatient, and residential treatment settings.'--Marla M. Sanzone, PhD, Adjunct Clinical Professor, Professional Psychology Graduate Program, George Washington University and ldquo;Along with Marsha Linehan and rsquo;s customary and distinctive authority, zeal, and wisdom, her new editions offer more detail and specificity, and new clinical pearls. Even those who are already familiar with DBT will be impressed by the evidence of its maturation and expansion, while for those who are wanting to learn DBT, these books offer the organization, clarity, and readability that will make learning a pleasure. and rdquo;--John Gunderson, MD, Director, Center for the Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School and ldquo;Marsha Linehan is a pioneering and well-respected researcher and clinician. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has become a therapy of choice for BPD since the publication of her first manual in 1993. DBT has been recommended in guidelines of the English National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and hellip;.Ideal for therapists, trainers, and students, the manual can now show the extent to which theory is underpinned by research on outcomes, quoting studies conducted since the publication of the first edition. The research base now includes core skills training for a variety of disorders and not only for those with a diagnosis of BPD and suicide risk. This makes the manual relevant to therapists treating varied clinical and non-clinical populations. The skills for helping clients with emotion regulation and distress tolerance should be in the repertoire of every mental health practitioner and addictions worker. There is a wealth of material in these manuals, now that over 20 years the skills have been tried, tested and refined by Linehan and her colleagues and made accessible to all. Trainers will find that the teaching points in the training manual are clear, with more practical examples cited--an excellent foundation for students. The rationale for emphasizing particular behavioral skills is given as well as an explanation of how to use the material with clients and hellip;.The training skills manual, along with the handout and worksheet volume are valuable resources for practicing clinicians in the field of mental health and addictions, whether or not DBT is their main orientation. and rdquo;--Alcohol and Alcoholism Alcohol and Alcoholism
