Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Private Practice (eBook)


Dialectical Behavior Therapy will teach mental health professionals how to successfully integrate DBT-oriented skills training into the therapy process, including techniques such as distress tolerance, mindfulness-based self-soothing exercises, and emotion regulation. Includes a web link to five slide-show training presentations and a series of useful client worksheets therapists can use to reinforce the work they do in sessions.


More Than a Treatment Strategy-A Whole New Direction in Psychotherapy

More than just a new behavioral treatment approach, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) marks a whole new theoretical orientation to the practice of clinical psychology-a rethinking of the causes, descriptions, and treatments of acute mental disorders. This volume offers a detailed explication of DBT in theory and practice. Designed to teach professionals how to use this method in a private-practice setting to treat a range of disorders, this book includes a clear and concise presentation of:

DBT and its orientation within the larger context of psychotherapy

Dialectic conflict and its role in sustaining mental disorders

The DBT coping skill set: meaning-making, mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and strategic behavior skills

Practical applications of DBT to a number of acute mental disorders

Includes a weblink to client worksheets and five skills-training slide shows
