Why do some people seem to be strengthened by pain, while others are literally destroyed by suffering? This program teaches how to alleviate suffering by accepting the world as it is. Revealed are the three skills that have enabled ordinary people to cope with extraordinary problems, disappointments, and seemingly unconquerable personal trauma. Examples drawn from years of clinical experience and research are used to demonstrate proven techniques for dealing with circumstances that “shouldn't be,” but are.

Review

“FABULOUS! The tapes can be very helpful to individuals new to dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as those who are more familiar with DBT skills. The video series is beneficial to both clinicians and clients. I have been teaching DBT skills for over 8 years and to have the opportunity to watch Dr. Linehan teach the skills will assist me in teaching the skills more effectively. The video series has also provided me with new ideas for various teaching points. The videos are very clear and concise in the teaching style as well as humorous!”–Gwen Anney-Cunningham, CSW

“Dr. Linehan has once again done a masterful job of explaining the concepts in a very understandable manner. I have been teaching this material for 9 years, and by watching these videos, was still able to pick up a number of pointers about teaching it more effectively. I have loaned the videos to clients, and they found them helpful not only for themselves, but they also shared them with other DBT clients and groups. This video series is a great addition to my tool kit to use with my clients (and peers!).”–Beverly Long, DBT Training Coordinator
