This book has helped me in so many ways, I can't thank the authors enough for writing it. It has changed my life and kept me from seriously harmful behaviors. My psychiatrist has also been highly impressed with this book. The text is very candid, for which I've been very grateful. They don't sugar coat and dance around issues and wording. They come right out and say what is needed. While working through this workbook, I have been able to write a short synopsis which I keep in my purse. This way, when faced with difficult situations and people I can excuse myself and quickly review my distress tolerance skills, my distration plan, my self-soothing strategies, my safe-place visualizations and more ways that I can cope instead of harming myself or blowing a circuit. This book has helped to reduce the intense emotional waves I experience and has helped me to keep my balance.

If I can help anyone who has self-harm behaviors - or even anger issues, depression, anxiety issues - by writing this review, please buy this book and put the ideas into practice. It could save your life. It has saved me from a lot of pain.

I decreased my klonopin by 1/2 to 2 mg / day after applying the skills in this book for over a month. I had a friend who was hospitalized recently at Mayo Clinic in Rochester and they had group meetings on topics included in this book. Very rewarding...read only that which is pertinent to you may I suggest..so you don't 'catch' a fear you hadn't thought about before :P

This book is an easy read and interesting. It's like having a therapy session whenever you need it. The book is full of mindful techniques to manage anxiety. It also goes into the background of many anxiety conditions. I've used many of the techniques to help relieve anxiety in stressful situations. DBT is a segway into Buddhism, which teaches how to cope with suffering, I've also noticed it used in spiritual practices with Deepak Chopra.

Great to guide patients in their healing process.
Easy to use.
Even if you know nothing about DBT, it will help you.

This is an easy to use book with educational info and helpful exercises. I am just starting to use it. However I have used the The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook by McKay, Wood, and Brantley for a while and it has been great!

I am still reading this book, but have been involved in a DBT skills group for six months. I have really gained a lot of knowledge and skills from both and really recommend this treatment modality.

These skills have been a life saver for me. And have been a big help to my daughter. I would recommend this to anyone, whether to those with or without mental illness.

If you are struggling with negative emotions read this book. It needs to be read slowly and thoughtfully. I highlighted a lot, then skim back through it to tie thoughts together. This will help you overcome bad things that have happened to you and focus on the life you have now.
