I marked about 1/3 of the activities for using in my therapy practice. Simple explanations and decent activities.

I especially enjoyed all of Chapter 4 on nonjudgmental communication and self validation.

This valuable workbook taps into the essence of dialectical behavior therapy skills and strategies in a simple, relevant, and highly practical format.

I've been on the lookout for a self-help book for teens that offers these valuable skills and I think I may have found it.
