This workbook offers 50 worksheets that will help clients learn strategies to manage their emotions in constructive ways, instead of turning to overeating, alcohol abuse, practicing unsafe sex, overspending, lashing out in anger, or other harmful behaviors.
The worksheets complement the content you and your clients cover during your appointment, by providing homework for them to do between sessions.
This workbook is divided into techniques covering each of the four DBT skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Each worksheet is written specifically for clients, in a manner that is practical, user-friendly, and easy to understand. While no single worksheet is effective for everyone, we are confident each client will discover techniques that inspire change.
