Cognitive-behavioral treatment of borderline personality disorder by Marsha Linehan( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the average clinician, clinic, or inpatient facility, individuals with borderline personality disorder often represent the most difficult and insoluble cases. The first volume to provide strategies proven effective in controlled clinical trials, this book is a comprehensive, integrated approach to therapy with this population. Marsha Linehan presents specific guidelines that creatively combine the best elements of behavioral, psychoanalytic, strategic, and other commonly employed modalities. A clinical innovator, she has analyzed the aspects of borderline into their component parts and developed a systematized approach to each of them. The first section of the book presents an overview of the disorder and lays out a theoretical framework to guide the therapy. The second describes in detail how to assess borderline patients and how to organize and prioritize treatment goals and behavioral targets. The core of the treatment is the balance of acceptance and change strategies, both within each therapy interaction and over time. For problem solving with borderline personality disorder, the book provides specific strategies for contingency management, exposure, cognitive modification, and skills training. The last component is further elucidated in the companion Skills Training Manual, which programmatically details procedures and includes client handouts for step-by-step implementation. Finally, to enhance interpersonal communication, Dr. Linehan presents three case management sets: consultation to the patient, environmental intervention, and consultation to the therapist. Addressing the most stressful patient behaviors that clinicians encounter, the book includes a step-by-step outline for assessing suicide risk, managing suicide threats, and working with chronic suicidal behavior. Integrative approaches for such specific problems as crises, noncompliance, and breakdowns in the therapeutic relationship are also discussed. Lucidly detailing effective techniques that can be replicated in clinical practice, this volume illuminates the internal experience of borderline individuals and provides clinicians with practical clinical tools for working with them. As such, it is an invaluable resource for all professionals who work with this difficult-to-treat population

Dialectical behavior therapy by Stephanie Vaughn( Visual )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marsha Linehan, PhD, the creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), is best known for her success with suicidal and highly complex clients. The amount of evidence-based research surrounding DBT is tremendous; not only in its application with Borderline Personality Disorder, but also with many other hard-to-treat conditions. In this video, watch Linehan demonstrate her approach with an extremely challenging client who manifests significant Axis II issues. This middle-aged man, portrayed by Dutch actor Henk Grashuis, is struggling with depression, suicidal ideation, anger, and a sense that he has been treated unfairly by his ex-girlfriend--all of which is hidden behind a brittle defensiveness. You'll see Linehan conducting an initial behavioral assessment, interspersed with DBT techniques, including her use of dialectics, irreverence, "validating the valid," and an emphasis on client choice. While the client works to keep his worst behaviors hidden from Linehan, and is reluctant to commit to any treatment, Linehan garners necessary information about him, assesses his suicidality and history of domestic violence, helps him define and commit to his goals, and builds an appropriate initial alliance

DBT skills manual for adolescents by Jill H Rathus( )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dialectical behavior therapy has revolutionized cognitive behavioral therapies with constructs such as mindfulness and acceptance now permeating behavioral approaches. Adolescents differ from adult clients with regard to emotional and cognitive developmental level and context: they overwhelmingly attend school, and reside with their families and depend on them for daily functioning, including for getting to therapy. Thus, we considered developmentally relevant as well as family-based targets, cognitive processing and capability differences, distinct liability issues, and interventions with their environments. Our adapted adolescent skills handouts are being used in multiple research settings; many clinical settings around the world employ some version of our materials. The publication of this manual makes them more widely available along with group management strategies and skills teaching notes to assist the DBT skills trainer working with adolescents"--
