Sherri Van Dijk, MSW
DBT has rapidly become one of the most popular, and effective, treatments for all mental health conditions rooted in out-of-control emotions. This guide provides clinicians with everything they need to start using DBT in therapy sessions.
The first part of this book covers the theory and research behind DBT, and explains how if differs from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) approaches.
The second part focuses on strategies to use in individual client sessions.
The third section teaches the four skills modules that form the backbone of DBT: core mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
DBT Made Simple includes handouts, case examples, and an example of therapist-client dialogue.
