“Chain analysis is the cornerstone of DBT, as successful treatment depends on accurate assessment of the problem. Through extensive clinical examples, this book richly illustrates the importance of chains as well as strategies for making them effective and engaging. Rizvi’s expert tips will be invaluable to both new and seasoned DBT clinicians seeking to master this crucial DBT strategy.”

—Melanie Harned, PhD, ABPP, VA Puget Sound Health Care System and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington


“Rizvi discusses an often overlooked but crucial ingredient of any effective intervention—assessment. This is not categorical diagnosis in the DSM tradition, but a thoroughgoing functional analysis of the controlling variables of the patient's problems. Rizvi’s substantial clinical and research experience and her compelling, personal writing style make this book an essential source for graduate students, academics, clinical supervisors, and practitioners. The kind of functional analysis intrinsic to DBT is relevant to any cognitive-behavioral intervention.”

—Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California


“This masterful book tells us why and how to use chain analysis in optimal and suboptimal clinical conditions. Rizvi's incisive instructions are beautifully illustrated with vivid, realistic dialogues from therapy sessions. While chains are typically used to assess overt dysfunctional behaviors, Rizvi makes it perfectly clear how to apply them to covert behaviors such as problematic thoughts and action urges. The book offers a sophisticated explanation of how to pivot back and forth between chain analysis and other DBT strategies. Simply put, this book provides the most comprehensive and practical handling of chain analysis available, and should be standard reading for DBT therapists.”

—Charles R. Swenson, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School


“Rizvi's cogent clinical examples not only vividly teach DBT's key assessment concepts, but also, importantly, model the clinical decision making essential to helping clients with complex problems. This book facilitates the kind of learning that is typically only available through expert supervision. A 'must have' for training clinics.”

—Kelly Koerner, PhD, Evidence-Based Practice Institute, Seattle, Washington
