To celebrate the new month of November, we are sharing our Book of the Month – DBT Teams: Development and Practice!
The DBT Teams: Development and Practice, written by Jennifer H. R. Sayrs and DBT founder Marsha M. Linehan, explains how teams in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) work. It highlights how DBT teams compare with traditional consultation teams. The book covers various aspects, including the responsibilities of the DBT team leader, the format of meetings, the implementation of DBT strategies within teams, the identification and resolution of typical team issues, and key functions both preceding, during, and following suicide crises. Additionally, the book offers reader-friendly elements, including exercises at the end of each chapter and easily reproducible handouts and forms.
