Adding to her long list of renowned publications and authorships, PDBTI director Linda Dimeff, PhD, along with Shireen Rizvi, PhD, ABPP, and Kelly Koerner, PhD, is excited to announce a second edition of the clinical guidebook Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Clinical Practice: Applications across Disorders and Settings.
This influential work has now been substantially revised with over 60% new material reflecting over a dozen years of research and clinical advances. Leading experts describe innovative ways to use dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in a wide range of real-world clinical and community settings. The volume provides wise guidance on setting up, running, and evaluating a comprehensive DBT program. It also presents adaptations designed to meet the needs of particular client populations as time- and cost-effectively as possible. Vivid case examples illustrate diverse applications of DBT for helping adults, adolescents, and children reduce suicidal and self-harming behavior; overcome complex, multiple challenges; and build a life worth living.
New to This Edition:
- Presents current best practices for making DBT more efficient and accessible while maximizing program fidelity.
- Chapters on additional populations, including persons with posttraumatic stress disorder and preadolescent children.
- Chapters on additional settings, including milieu-based programs, university counseling centers, and middle and high schools.
- Chapters on pharmacotherapy, promoting employment and self-sufficiency, training and supervision, and DBT beyond Stage 1.
