Just think if you have a go-to book that would help solve your toughest challenges when working with troubled teens. Jean Eich, PsyD, was searching for such a resource and it didn’t exist….
“I didn’t have and couldn’t find a comprehensive, practical source of information for doing DBT with teenagers. And it needed to be something that spoke to therapists, parents and the adolescents as all are involved for successful treatment. I wanted a source of information that would include worksheets on DBT written for teenagers and n a way that appeals to them. I also wanted information about how to practically apply DBT with parents and a source of information that I could point parents to. Plus – it needed to include something for the professionals to implement DBT, and work with these distinct audiences, as they are related. Not finding what I needed – I wrote one, including all the information I have learned and applied in my own practice.”
Introducing – a complete skills training manual for DBT with adolescents, focused on practical application for teens, parents and therapists, all in one comprehensive manual.
Part One covers DBT for teens with comprehensive and age-relevant skills explanations, examples and applied worksheets. Eich makes the skills real for teens with exercises that get them practicing new behaviors in real-life situations. Includes teaching pages for all four DBT skills training modules.
Part Two is a dedicated focus to parents with pertinent information on DBT, parenting and common teenage developmental issues, as well as, skills written to get parents using them individually, in connection with their child(ren), and as a part of the family system. This section not only emphasizes that DBT skills can be used for anybody and everybody, but also that parents need to be active and involved for any effective change process.
Part Three is crafted for therapists, with practical strategies on how to conduct DBT programming, tips to navigate dialectical dilemmas with adolescent developmental tasks and behaviors, and advice to balance therapy with parental involvement. Part Three also contains suggestions to teach the skills in active and experiential ways along with helpful sample forms, handouts and worksheets.

    Haven’t read it yet, but I have high hopes for it as my daughter’s therapist recommended it to me.

    This book references extreme behaviors often, implying that the author expects teens to be extremely emotionally disturbed.

    I bought this for my almost 13 year old normal kid just to have adequate tools as he moves into adolescence. I have to tag it to him so I can censor the extreme negative implications and stick to the facts and skills.

    Some of the terminology is weird. Like “wise mind”. “Reasonable” or “Balanced” would make more sense.

    Starting out as a clinical therapist for adolescent males going through substance use recovery and treatment, this manual has been super helpful and easy to understand! I love that it has sections for the adolescent, parent, and therapist.
