Editorial Reviews

Review

"The bible of DBT. Over two decades later, Linehan’s comprehensive treatment manual still stands without peer as the complete and lucid introduction to DBT as well as the in-depth text for the advanced practitioner. DBT’s skills are effective and potent if delivered in the context of the theory, principles, protocols, and strategies of the treatment, all of which are presented in this book. It is essential reading for therapists delivering the significantly upgraded skills in DBT Skills Training Manual, Second Edition."--Charles R. Swenson, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts School of Medicine

"Every once in a very long while in our field, a clinical innovation is introduced that profoundly improves patient care. Marsha Linehan's development of a cognitive-behavioral approach to borderline personality disorder is such a rare innovation....Her techniques are clear, teachable, and learnable, and make good common sense to the therapist and the patient. Dr. Linehan's methods have greatly improved my treatment of borderline individuals and my teaching of others in how best to understand and treat these patients.''--Allen Frances, MD

"Marsha Linehan's tremendously in-depth and informative book and its companion skills-training manual offer a needed guide to the cognitive-behavioral treatment of borderline personality disorder....Her method has become so widely used by clinicians that the experts in psychosocial treatments consider it one of the best....Marsha Linehan's methods are highly eclectic because they are empirically based; they have been fashioned to fit what works best for borderline patients."--Lester Luborsky, PhD

"Linehan is one of our most creative and articulate clinicians....As a true scientist-professional, she has not only been innovating in the treatment of one of the most daunting of disorders--borderline personality--but has successfully subjected her ideas to controlled empirical scrutiny."--Gerald Davison, PhD, University of Southern California

"Dr. Linehan's approach is sensible, pragmatic, and effective. Most importantly, it offers the therapist a humane and sensitive perspective on persons with Borderline Personality Disorder. In short, it treats both the therapist and the client in a fashion that produces results."--Mark Ciocca, PhD, Central New Hampshire Community Mental Health Center

 


"We highly recommend this text and its companion training manual...."
(Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic 1993-05-16)

"...represents a gold standard" for treatment of this diagnostic category."
(Behaviour Research and Therapy 1993-05-16)

"It is the most exacting and well thought out treatment plan I have ever seen written for any disorder....I have tried to find shortcomings with this book. I can find none. It is one of the best pieces of clinical work ever written. No matter what your clinical or research focus of interest, you will gain immensely from reading Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder."
(Journal of Family Violence 1993-05-16)

Review

'Linehan is a brilliant, compassionate, and rigorous therapist for borderline patients. What's more, and what is most unusual for master therapists, she has proven its efficacy in published randomized, controlled trials. What is fortuitous for borderline patients and their therapists is that she has painstakingly crafted a wise book and user-friendly manual well grounded in principle, detailed in its strategies, and exportable to a wide range of treatment settings... Linehan has set a high standard of treatment for borderlines in the 1990s; the patients will be the ultimate beneficiaries.' - Charles R. Swenson, MD, New York Hospital, Westchester Division, USA
