Getting a New Client Connected to Dbt (Complete Series)by Marsha M. Linehan
Synopses & Reviews
This 4-DVD set vividly illustrates the initial sessions of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). The program features DBT originator Marsha M. Linehan in unscripted role-plays with a fictional client. Viewers observe how a skilled DBT therapist orients a new client to treatment, identifies the client's goals, assesses suicide risks, and obtains a commitment to participate in treatment and give up self-harming behaviors. Dr. Linehan discusses her decision-making process and demonstrates ways to set the stage for a successful therapeutic relationship. Each DVD includes a printable PDF Study Guide packed with valuable information, including session transcripts with commentary from Dr. Linehan and other experts, practice exercises, and sample client handouts. Running time: 251 minutes.
