Reviews about the ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets
- Renee Michelle:
DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets For anyone suffering C-PTSD, “C” representing “Complex” (long-term early childhood-onset abuse lasting years), DBT is the first and only remarkably effective treatment to cope with fears triggered by unknown causes. The point of DBT is to awaken to the fact that feeling depressed, fearful, distress, anxious… is perfectly normal; but its cause is no longer present, so suffering is based on repressed trauma that is never dealt with because one doesn’t know why.Practice the skills from this ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets, which will bring immense relief the more you use them.
- Gene Ray:
As a therapist for the past 22 years, and the owner of over 500 books relating to the profession, I can easily say this is one of the most valuable books DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets in my library. I’ve used it numerous times in the last 6 weeks since I ordered it, and not just for clients with Borderline Personality Disorder. If you are the owner of Linehan’s original Skills Training Manual (1993) and found it not terribly user-friendly, you will be pleasantly surprised at how attractive, clear, and useful the new handouts and worksheets are.
- Oakley McMullin:
This is not a self-help ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets, it’s the handouts and homework to go along with dialectical behavioral therapy. The book won’t make sense on its own. I highly recommend the therapy to anyone that feels drawn to it. There are so many valuable life skills taught- mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.
I purchased this ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets because my DBT counselor was always having to print and I was feeling bad. Anyway now she just marks what pages to do for homework. This book is helpful in learning the skills necessary to move through DBT.
- Wade McGinnis:
Bought this for my work, and it’s wonderful that Linehan & co. have finally updated their DBT materials and approaches. This collection is a nice expansion of the materials, and you can print tons and tons of worksheets from a webpage which is invaluable for use with patients. I wish the handouts were available as well in the same fashion though. I’m grateful for some new material to use in my DBT group, like cycling through the modules can get s but weary for professionals.

Marsha Linehan has done an amazing job at developing a DBT program at will help build coping skills to be able to manage emotions, chronic illness, anxiety, depression, PTSD and so much more. I went through this entire program and it changed my life, and now I am in school to be a certified therapist, and then will work toward my certification in this program. I highly recommend this for anyone who is suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, chronic pain, mental illness, PTSD, grief, and more. In fact, I think these skills should be taught in high schools ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets.
This ebook DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets has exercises, assessments, and worksheets to complement “The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook”. I recommend both books as DBT therapy changed my life. I got them to work with my daughter in hopes it will have the same positive effect for her. I believe everyone should have DBT training. These books could be the key to a better world in my opinion. The skills you will learn in this book are skills anyone can incorporate into their everyday lives. You don’t have to suffer from mental health issues to benefit from these skills. These are real-life skills. In some ways, I feel it has unlocked some secret key to a happy and healthy life DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets.

I don’t usually post reviews but I wanted to respond to a reviewer who says ״But it’s just a full copy of her all her courses handouts and those used for the complete treatment program of DBT.״ I want to say – What on Earth do you mean by ׳just’?! A complete set of every single handout and worksheet is just an amazing resource! So generous and such great value. I’m a Human Givens therapist and haven’t been able to help my daughter enough up to now. By going through these with my daughter using one of the 24-week schedules outlined, it’s going amazingly well. Honestly, it sounds unbelievable but after just two sessions, there’s a real difference already. I can’t praise this enough. It’s overwhelming I agree but that’s because it is complete. I׳d say it’s well worth spending the time to get to grips with it. I think it’s more for therapists though than for self-help unless it’s used as worksheets to accompany a course.
