Filling a tremendous need, this highly practical book adapts the proven techniques of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
to treatment of multiproblem adolescents at highest risk for suicidal behavior and self-injury. The authors are master
clinicians who take the reader step by step through understanding and assessing severe emotional dysregulation in teens
and implementing individual, family, and group-based interventions. Insightful guidance on everything from orientation
to termination is enlivened by case illustrations and sample dialogues. Appendices feature 30 mindfulness exercises as
well as lecture notes and 12 reproducible handouts for "Walking the Middle Path," a DBT skills training module for
adolescents and their families. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print these handouts and
several other tools from the book in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
