Have you always wanted to learn how to use DBT with your clients but weren’t sure where to start? Have you believed that only full-fidelity DBT works and that if you can’t offer all the elements of DBT in your setting you shouldn’t bother learning DBT? The authors address those questions and more with a practical guide for applying DBT skills to fit your client needs.

Clearly written and easy to understand for all levels of DBT experience, the authors bring their extensive knowledge to light with creative ideas that work, clinical examples, treatment plans, practice vignettes, and strategies for adapting the skills across a variety of settings and age groups.

Examples throughout this book will address issues such as:

- Anger and Emotion Dysregulation
- Depression
- Substance Use Disorder
- Anxiety
- Impulse Control
- Trauma
- Conduct Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- Grief
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Bipolar
- Stress Management
