Changing Behavior in DBT®
Problem Solving in Action
by Heidi L. Heard and Michaela A. Swales

This book delves into problem solving, one of the core components of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Full Description:   

This book delves into problem solving, one of the core components of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). The authors are leading DBT trainers who elucidate the therapy's principles of behavior change and use case examples to illustrate their effective application. Particular attention is given to common pitfalls that therapists encounter in analyzing target behaviors—for example, a suicide attempt or an episode of bingeing and purging—and selecting and implementing appropriate solutions. Guidelines are provided for successfully implementing the full range of DBT problem-solving strategies, including skills training, stimulus control and exposure, cognitive restructuring, and contingency management.
