Pros: Therapists inside look to DBT
Cons: DBT sessions are better

If you are currently in DBT or plan to join an DBT group you will find this book very helpful. Not only does it contain the handouts given in sessions, it goes farther in depth to the skills. It is an excellent supplement to DBT group and individual therapy.

Pros: Useful handouts for DBT
Cons:

This book provides sheets of the skills that are taught in DBT. The book is in large size for ease of photocopying handouts to give to clients. If you do a course of DBT you will probably be given the handouts... What you don't get, however, is the rationale for the skills. I found it extremely useful to read the little blurb on *why* we were learning the skills before going to skills training. It helped me a lot to understand the rationale. There are also good descriptions of how to do the skills and lots of interesting metaphors and examples.I'd reccomend it as a useful suppliment for someone doing DBT. I'd also reccomend it to people more generally. I think everyone can benefit from DBT! I look forward to the day they empirically test it for other dx's such as for improving social skills in schizophrenia and psychotic disorders and so on...
