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
