ONE BIG CAVEAT, however - the book's listing says that both handouts and worksheets are downloadable - a large reason why I bought the book. However, this is not true; I was only able to download the worksheets, and despite a number of emails with Guilford, who did seem to be trying to be helpful, I was unable to resolve this problem. They do claim that if you buy the textbook DBT® Skills Training Manual, Second Edition, you can download the handouts as well from the website listed in that book. If I had known that, I would have bought the textbook, even for the higher price. It is a pain to have to singly photocopy the handouts that I wish to share with a client...

It has also changed my opinion on how effective mindfulness can be, as I once had judgement about who mindfulness was for now I understand that it is more about being aware of yourself, how things effect you and how having an awareness of yourself in this way can help you to prepare for things that may be difficult, as well as helping you have far more control over our behaviour and emotions than I thought was possible.
Can't recommend this enough, but if you are to work on this please ensure that you have someone helping you who understands the language and intention, preferable someone trained to teach DBT skills.
Had to buy this for therapy group - thought I'd joined a cult the word of MARSHA was obsessively used.
Disagree with DBT entirely for victims of sexual abuse, specific 1-1 therapy should be available instead.
