Review

'This outstanding book represents a major contribution to the prevention of adolescent suicide. It is extensively detailed to inform clinicians about the applications of this effective psychosocial treatment for adolescents who present with specific risk factors. Written by pioneering developers of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), this book is essential reading for mental health professionals at every level of experience and training.' - "Cynthia R. Pfeffer, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, USA" 'This book is extremely relevant for therapists working with adolescents who engage in suicidal and other high-risk behaviors. In addition to providing an efficacious and easily understood manualized approach for this population, it offers many valuable tips for building a strong therapeutic alliance with this challenging population.' - "Lynn Ponton, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, USA" 'An excellent, practical book on a very difficult-to-treat and neglected population... This book is recommended for students, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric residents, psychiatrists, and other professionals dealing with mental health issues in teenagers. Also, this book is an outstanding resource for researchers evaluating the efficacy of DBT for teenagers.' - "Boris Birmaher, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, USA" 'A humane, practical, and erudite guide. The authors, through their dialectical approach, provide a theoretical framework that allows for an efficient, realistic, and parsimonious approach to the core difficulties in multiple health-risk behaviors in youth. Most important, they provide clear guidelines as to how therapists should conduct themselves to be maximally effective with these challenging adolescents, and how to cope with the emotional demands of work with this population. What the reader will learn is that DBT is more than a set of skills and techniques/m-/it is a way of understanding and conceptualizing human behavior. This book should be read by every professional who works with multiproblem teens.' - "David A. Brent, MD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Services for Teens at Risk, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, USA"
