Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Filled with vivid clinical vignettes and step-by-step descriptions, this book demonstrates the nuts and bolts of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

DBT is expressly designed for - and shown to be effective with - clients with serious, multiple problems and a history of treatment failure.

Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy: A Practical Guide provides an accessible introduction to DBT while enabling therapists of any orientation to integrate elements of this evidence-based approach into their work with emotionally dysregulated clients.

Experienced DBT clinician and trainer Kelly Koerner clearly explains how to formulate individual cases; prioritize treatment goals; and implement a skillfully orchestrated blend of behavioral change strategies, validation strategies, and dialectical strategies.
