For the average clinician, individuals with borderline personality disorder BPD often represent the most challenging, seemingly insoluble cases. This volume is the authoritative presentation of dialectical behavior therapy DBT , Marsha M. Linehan''s comprehensive, integrated approach to treating individuals with BPD.
