Dialectical Behaviour Therapy with Suicidal Adolescents


Product Description

Published USA, 2017
This eminently practical book adapts the proven techniques of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) to treatment of multiproblem adolescents at highest risk of suicidal behaviour and self-injury. The book explains the `whys`, `whats` and `how-tos` of assessing severe emotional dysregulation in teens, determining treatment feasibility, effectively engaging clients and implementing carefully structured individual, family and group interventions. Issues in setting up a DBT program are also addressed. Appendices feature 30 mindfulness exercises for teens as well as lecture notes and 12 reproducible handouts for Walking the Path, a completely new DBT skills training module for adolescents and their families.
