"DBT skills are useful not only for individuals who suffer from persistent emotion regulation difficulties, but also for individuals in extreme circumstances and people who have ordinary problems. This updated manual provides the `flexibility within fidelity' in teaching these skills that practitioners and treatment adopters need. New, improved, expanded, and much clearer skills--they're all here! Skills trainers and their clients will benefit from Linehan and her colleagues' decades of systematic research and time spent developing, testing, and refining these skills, empowering practitioners to confidently offer multiple ways of understanding and practicing new behavior. Experienced skills trainers will notice the evolved richness and depth, while the explanations and teaching points will provide new trainers and students with an excellent foundation for skills training with both adults and adolescents. Providing a solid evidence-based foundation for core clinical training curricula, the manual and accompanying volume of handouts and worksheets will be essential across the mental health disciplines."--Andre Ivanoff, PhD, Columbia University School of Social Work

They will stand as the authoritative guides for teaching DBT skills, partnering with clients to build lives worth living, and helping us to address our national and international priorities of saving millions of lives lost to suicide worldwide.
