Filling a tremendous need, this highly practical book adapts the proven techniques of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to treatment of multi-problem adolescents at highest risk for suicidal behaviour and self-injury. The authors are master clinicians who take the reader step-by-step through understanding and assessing severe emotional dysregulation in teens and implementing individual, family, and group-based interventions.

Insightful guidance on everything from orientation to termination is enlivened by case illustrations and sample dialogues.

Appendices feature:

  • 30 mindfulness exercises as well as lecture notes
  • 12 reproducible handouts for "Walking the Middle Path," a new DBT skills training module for adolescents and their families.

Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print these handouts and several other tools from the book in a convenient 8½" x 11" size.
