Product Description

Drawing on evidence-based dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), this book provides an overview of DBT applications that can be used to treat an array of issues that at-risk adolescents face. The book also provides practical handouts and exercises that can be used in individual therapy sessions, skills training groups, school settings and when working with parents and caregivers. The skills adolescents learn now can have a life-long impact. By showing them how to manage their emotions and deal with the stresses that are common in day-to-day life, you can give these adolescents the tools they need to succeed.
