Books on DBT

Post by emmajane » Thu Oct 30, 2008 10:07 am


I have an interview coming up for a job that will involve using DBT and some CBT, i would get trained for this but i want to read up on these techniques before the interview, especially DBT which I dont know that well. Any suggestions on good books, articles or even websites??

Thankyou :)

I've found this book particularly useful for making sense of the overly complicated BDT language: ... pd_sim_b_8

There's also a wiki topic on DBT that you might find useful here too

I'm currently involved in the running and set up of a DBT programme, pm me if you want more information on it

Anything by Marsha Linehan
The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by any invader. The mind is a complex and many layered thing.
