Difficult emotions like anger, fear, sadness, guilt, and shame are part of being alive and are meant to help protect us, but when they get out of control, these emotions can also cause severe pain. When you're in the grip of an emotional storm, it's all too easy to overreact, lash out at others, or become angry with yourself. Therapists created dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, to help people with overwhelming emotions calm themselves when their feelings become too painful or out of control. The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Diary presents an overview of each of the four DBT skills-distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness-and includes a journal you can use each day to monitor your successes, chart your progress, and stay on track making productive changes in your life. With this diary, you can: Learn over twenty techniques to use when you feel overwhelmed Observe and record your progress each day Find out which coping strategies work best for you Discover nutrition and lifestyle changes that can make you feel better

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has quickly become a treatment of choice for individuals with borderline personality disorder and other complicated psychiatric conditions. Becoming proficient in standard DBT requires intensive training and extensive supervised experience. However, there are many DBT principles and procedures that can be readily adapted for therapists conducting supportive, psychodynamic, and even other forms of cognitive behavioral treatments.Despite this, there is a dearth of easily accessible reading material for the busy clinician or novice. This new book provides a clinically oriented, user-friendly guide to understanding and utilizing the principles and techniques of DBT for non-DBT-trained mental health practitioners and is an ideal guide to DBT for clinicians at all levels of experience. Written by internationally recognized experts in suicide, self injury and borderline personality disorder, it features clinical vignettes, following patients through a series of chapters, clearly illustrating both the therapeutic principles and interventions.

Just think if you had a go-to book that would help solve your toughest challenges when working with troubled teens. Jean Eich, PsyD, was searching for such a resource and it didn’t exist... “I didn't have and couldn't find a comprehensive, practical source of information for doing DBT with teenagers. And it needed to be something that spoke to therapists, parents and the adolescents as all are involved for successful treatment. I wanted a source of information that would include worksheets on DBT written for teenagers and in a way that appeals to them. I also wanted information about how to practically apply DBT with parents and a source of information that I could point parents to. Plus - it needed to include something for the professionals to implement DBT, and work with these distinct audiences, as they are related. Not finding what I needed - I wrote one, including all the information I have learned and applied in my own practice.” Introducing - a complete skills training manual for DBT with adolescents, focused on practical application for teens, parents and therapists, all in one comprehensive manual. Part One covers DBT for teens with comprehensive and age-relevant skills explanations, examples, and applied worksheets. Eich makes the skills real for teens with exercises that get them practicing new behaviors in real-life situations. Includes teaching pages for all four DBT skills training modules. Part Two is a dedicated focus to parents with pertinent information on DBT, parenting, and common teenage developmental issues, as well as, skills written to get parents using them individually, in connection with their child(ren), and as a part of the family system. This section not only emphasizes that DBT skills can be used for anybody and everybody, but also that parents need to be active and involved for an effective change process. Part Three is crafted for therapists, with practical strategies on how to conduct DBT programming, tips to navigate dialectical dilemmas with adolescent developmental tasks and behaviors, and advice to balance therapy with parental involvement. Part Three also contains suggestions to teach the skills in active and experiential ways along with helpful sample forms, handouts, and worksheets.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach used to treat individuals with complex psychological disorders, particularly chronically suicidal individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD). The therapy articulates a series of principles that effectively guide clinicians in responding to problematic behaviours. Treated problems include, among others, attempting suicide, bingeing, purging, using illegal drugs and behaviours that directly impede the treatment. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy: Distinctive Features highlights theoretical and practical features of the treatment using extensive clinical examples to demonstrate how the theory translates into practice. This updated edition reviews recent modifications to the structure of the treatment and considers more recent research evidence for both the biosocial theory underpinning the treatment and treatment efficacy. The book provides a clear overview of a complex treatment, through a unique application of strategies and a discussion of a comprehensive treatment programme that structures the therapeutic journey for the client. The book will be of interest to clinicians wanting to develop their knowledge about the treatment, prior to formal training; post-graduate students in mental health seeking to learn how to conceptualize complex problems; DBT trained clinicians who require a useful précis of the treatment with clinical examples, and clients about to embark upon this treatment. This book provides a clear and structured overview of a complex treatment. It is written for both practising clinicians and students wishing to learn more about DBT and how it differs from the other cognitive behaviour therapies.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that six of ten individuals with a substance use disorder meet criteria for another mental illness diagnosis. These co-occurring disorders present significant challenges for both chemical dependency and mental health practitioners across levels of treatment intensity. To answer these challenges, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has emerged as a highly teachable and applicable approach for people with complex co-morbidities. This workbook outlines the acceptance-based philosophies of DBT with straight-forward guidelines for implementing them in Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) settings along with comprehensive explanations of DBT skills tailored for those with dual disorders. Includes reproducible handouts
This book delves into problem solving, one of the core components of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). The authors are leading DBT trainers who elucidate the therapy's principles of behavior change and use case examples to illustrate their effective application. Particular attention is given to common pitfalls that therapists encounter in analyzing target behaviors--for example, a suicide attempt or an episode of bingeing and purging--and selecting and implementing appropriate solutions. Guidelines are provided for successfully implementing the full range of DBT problem-solving strategies, including skills training, stimulus control and exposure, cognitive restructuring, and contingency management.
How can disordered eating be effectively treated? The answer is not yet clear. Although cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is generally considered the treatment of choice, disordered eating has been shown to persist and re-emerge following CBT. Furthermore, little research exists regarding treatment efficacy for eating disorder presentations that fall outside of the current diagnoses of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. The current study bolsters this area by examining the efficacy of two brief treatments based on dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for binge eating, be it in the context of full- or sub-threshold BN or full or sub-threshold BED. Participants were randomly assigned to either group DBT with coaching calls (DBT) or diary card self-monitoring with brief individual sessions (DC). Fifteen treatment sessions were provided over 16 weeks. Both treatments were associated with significant change (in the desired direction) in bulimic symptoms, dichotomous thinking, food labeling, drive for thinness, body dissatisfaction, ineffectiveness, perfectionism, and interpersonal distrust over the course of treatment. While DBT outperformed DC on symptom measures, DC outperformed DBT on retention. The results point to possibilities for stepped care and avenues for future research, including replication with a larger sample, further dismantling (e.g., DBT vs. behavior chain analysis; DBT vs. mindful eating), and comparison with other available treatments (e.g., treatment as usual; CBT; IPT).
