Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at clinicians, this text adapts the concepts and techniques of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for use in the treatment of multi- problem adolescents who are most at risk for suicidal behavior and self-injury. Following an overview of the key risk factors, Miller (Albert Einstein College of Medicine) and co-authors review the existing literature on treatment of suicidal behaviors and then discuss the theoretical underpinnings of DBT and its practical applications. They also describe their experiences running multifamily skills training sessions and address various program- related issues. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Filling a tremendous need, this highly practical book adapts the proven techniques of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to treatment of multiproblem adolescents at highest risk for suicidal behavior 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 and 12 reproducible handouts for "Walking the Middle Path," a completely new DBT skills training module for adolescents and their families.
