Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is simple: It’s intended to help you understand dialectical behavior therapy, what it is, why it’s used, and how you can use it effectively in order to better regulate your emotions, deal with stressful situations, and use the power of mindfulness in your day-to-day life in order to improve the quality of living overall. This audiobook is especially useful as a reference for people with borderline personality disorder if used in tandem with a personal therapist.  

The intent of dialectical behavior therapy is to give somebody a “life worth living”, as stated by the creator of the therapy. If you feel like you need to regain control over your emotions and your life, then dialectical behavior therapy gives you a fantastic springboard from which to start.  

Working from the basics of the therapy to the specifics of the different skills it helps you to build, we’ll cover everything from why this was developed to how to use it effectively every day, as well as propose the general plan for dialectical behavior therapy so you have a schedule with which to work.  

If you need help regulating your emotions, don’t wait; get this audiobook and find vital tips to benefit your emotional health.

decent guide


I needed a resource for a project. The book was cheaper than purchasing a journal article and it was very informative. I finally have a decent understanding of DBT. At the very least a point of reference to be able to dive deeper into it.

I am extremely grateful to the author for easing my frustration. I hope Koerner will write lots more DBT texts - for all people engaged in DBT at all skill levels.

fabulous


good tips but not easy to navigate. It's like being in school but without the teacher to tell you how to use it. More time consuming than I would like but good information and descriptions for everything.

The different plans for variations on the therapy can be a bit much to keep up with but there is an application of DBT here for almost any need.

Amazing book, life changing. I am now going through this with my therapist and it is proving to be exactly what I needed. I often share what I have learned, and continue to learn from this powerful manual.
