Do you find yourself having trouble managing your emotions?

In this book, we explore Dr. Marsha Linehan’s groundbreaking treatment, which was first developed for borderline personality disorder. It has been proven as an effective and easy to follow treatment that includes mindfulness. Not only is this treatment focused for BPD, but research has shown that DBT can treat other types of mental health issues such as anxiety and addiction. 

This is a great book for anyone who suffers from these disorders, as well as those having trouble managing their emotions or if they have family and friends that do. 

DBT has been proven to improve your ability to handle stress and trauma without acting destructively or losing control. 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy will be helpful for anyone going through dialectal behavioral therapy or if you plan to help a friend or family member going through DBT. Dialectical Behavior Therapy also known as DBT for short, has four stages. These stages are as follows: Stage 1, aims to treat the most destructive behavior in a person which is self-injury and suicide attempts. In state 2, the therapist focuses on addressing the quality of life skills such as distress tolerance, emotional regulation as well as interpersonal effectiveness. For state 3, the focus is on improving self-esteem and simultaneously relationships. Finally, in stage 4, therapy is focused on increasing relationship connections and bringing in more happiness and joy into the person’s life. Knowing and understanding dialectical behavior therapy will help you and others around you getting through DBT. 

In addition to knowing what to expect in DBT, this book will help you: learn the signs and symptoms, the causes and risk factors, as well as possible complications. Not only will you learn how to find a therapist but also techniques and other treatments.
