Phone Coaching in Dialectical Behavior Therapy is the first comprehensive guide on this topic. Phone coaching is often a challenging aspect of delivering DBT treatment, and this book addresses the many questions clinicians have about implementing this vital DBT component. Topics include setting limits, managing suicide risk, how to coach core DBT emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills, and how to structure coaching calls.
This course is based on the book, Phone Coaching in Dialectical Behavior Therapy created by Alexander L. Chapman, PhD, in 2018.
