“I am so pleased to see the second edition of this excellent work, which has been a much-tapped resource on my bookshelf over the years! The second edition shares all the excellent qualities of the first—it is theoretically sound, clinically relevant, engaging, and written by preeminent DBT clinicians and researchers. The book covers an even broader diversity of settings and client groups in which DBT is applied, thoroughly showcasing all that we have learned about the treatment in the last decade. Clinicians will find much of value, whether they are at the start of their DBT journey or have worked in the field for a while and want to review and update their programs and practices.”

—Michaela A. Swales, PhD, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Professor in Clinical Psychology, North Wales Clinical Psychology Program, Bangor University, United Kingdom

“As application of DBT has expanded beyond its original clinical setting, it has moved into settings such as hospital units, residential programs, and the school classroom. This expertly edited second edition comprehensively addresses how DBT has evolved and how to ensure that implementation remains adherent to the treatment. The book builds on essential DBT concepts and applies them effectively to various contexts. This book is an indispensable contribution for therapists who want to develop a deeper understanding of the treatment and for graduate educators who want to teach a comprehensive DBT course.”

—Blaise Aguirre, MD, Medical Director, 3East DBT Continuum, McLean Hospital; Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

“DBT has earned a unique place in our clinical toolkits due to its rigorous scientific evidence base and its enthusiastic reception among clinicians, other health care decision makers, and clients and their families. This volume offers practical guidance on DBT, grounded in research and clinical experience. Chapters cover implementation issues, strategies for using DBT across diverse settings and populations, approaches for integrating pharmacological treatments and DBT, and training and supervision issues. This book is a 'must' for any clinician interested in DBT; instructors will find it to be a valuable text or supplemental reading for courses on psychotherapy and psychosocial treatment.”

—Joan Asarnow, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles

“Superbly edited by Dimeff, Rizvi, and Koerner, the second edition of this seminal work is a DBT tour de force. Building on the strong foundation of the first edition, the volume includes nine new chapters related to cutting-edge clinical delivery of DBT. The contributors are a veritable who’s who of DBT science, training, and clinical practice. Marsha Linehan has fundamentally revolutionized our understanding and treatment of suicidal risk, self-harm behaviors, and complex case presentations. This second edition is a worthy testament to Linehan's vision and genius and will prove to be an invaluable resource for students and providers of DBT around the world.”
