Editorial Reviews

Review

This is the most comprehensive DBT resource available to date; useful to both the experienced DBT clinician and new therapist. Lane has taken the evidence based foundations of DBT and expanded and extended the model through new ideas, suggestions and clinical tools. --Cathy Moonshine, Ph.D., MSCP, MAC, CADC III, author of Dialectical Behavior Therapy Volumes 1 & 2

The book shows the interaction of the different skills modules to problem resolution, rather than simply listing each module as if it stands on its own. Clearly written and easy to understand, an excellent resource. --Thomas Marra, Ph.D., President of Center for DBT, author of Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Private Practice

This book is jam packed with new and creative information for both facilitators of DBT and those looking for self help that really delivers. The authors bring their extensive experience in helping folks through the roughest spots of life to expand and improve the already effective DBT model. --Barry L. Duncan, author of Becoming a Better Therapist and co-author of The Heart and Soul of Change

Amazon said it would take 1-2 months to receive, but I got it in just over a week, and I am glad I took the risk of playing the waiting game (loving immediate gratification like most people!). Having used several DBT manuals (Linehan's, Matthew McKay's, and Cathy Moonshine's), I can say that I am extremely pleased to add this to my "toolbox." This book has many skills not covered in other DBT manuals and is expanded in that sense, not in the sense of being overly verbose. I appreciate clear and concise explanations that don't bog me down (or bog down clients I assign bibliotherapy to). I also liked the worksheets and guidelines for many recommended DBT practices, again finding them to explained in practical rather than academic ways. This book will no doubt help DBT therapists (and non-DBT therapists who teach skills) and might be a great resource for people looking to understand DBT skills without a therapist. The only drawback I can think of is not having an included disk to make copies from (in fairness, most manuals don't). This "extra" would decrease time at the copy machine! If you're into DBT or skill-building, this book is highly recommended!

I'm new to DBT and found this workbook well organized and very useful. I am finding skill-building opportunities in every area of life now! I am inspired to develop my own ideas in this practical format. I was initially puzzled by the book's copyright statement that the pages were not to be copied in any format for any reason without written permission, but when I contacted the lead author by email, he responded very quickly that he always intended for therapists to be able to make copies for use with clients, and that the next printing will make this intention clear. He also said that he encourages therapists to adapt the worksheets to suit their purposes and that it is not necessary to credit this book when doing so. I say kudos to Lane Pederson for sharing so generously, which is in keeping with the philosophy he puts forth in this book that we should all exercise our flexibility and creativity to make DBT skills as usable as we can to as many clients as we can!

I attended to a training seminar in DBT last month (mostly an introduction to DBT). I was very excited about what I learned and how I could apply the skills training to my practice. My problem was that I could receive only limited information on the application of the skills training with my clients. I got on Amazon and searched for a book that could walk me through each of the skills so I could learn it, understand it, and then teach it to my clients. This is the PERFECT solution to my problem. The language is very easy to understand and it groups the skills in logical and easy to follow modules. I've adopted some of the skills myself in my personal life and have enjoyed the benefits. All of the clients I've used this with have very much appreciated the skills.
My only wish, as with other reviews, is that the book came with all of the worksheets on CD so I didn't have to make so many copies. Overall, a great resource for those who want to use DBT with their clients and haven't had a ton of formal training in the therapy mode. I imagine it would be great for the general population who would like to learn mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal skills on their own without the help of a therapist.

This book is very easy to read and understand. The expanded modules are a great addition to the original modules contained in Dr. Linehan's work. The worksheet examples are top notch as well. I lead several peer oriented groups and this book is a great addition to my toolbox.

Clinicians and clients alike will reference this workbook for years to come. It is concise enough to provide immediate relief to those who use it appropriately, yet the topics included are deep enough to address continuing and ongoing needs. It is a perfect mix of explanation and application. I've had it for a few months and use it almost daily. This is a must have!

This book was recommended to me by a friend to gain a different perspective on seeing things. I do realize that this was written for clinical work. That said, it is easy to read, follow, and understand the ideas and practices of it to gain a different perspective on addressing other people and personal perspective.

I facilitate a DBT IOP Skills Group and use Linehan's manual. I bought this book, The Expanded DBT Skills training, and incorporated many of the new skills and my clients really liked the new skills. Now I use skills from both manuals.
