Some causes of emotional distress frankly have no simple remedy--or can't be changed at all. But all of us have short-term crises of one kind or another. What we do about them and how we do it can have a profound effect on our ability to get through them. This program teaches clients seven ways to distract themselves from painful events and emotions and offers invaluable tips for comforting themselves in times of stress.

"FABULOUS! The tapes can be very helpful to individuals new to dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as those who are more familiar with DBT skills. The video series is beneficial to both clinicians and clients. I have been teaching DBT skills for over 8 years and to have the opportunity to watch Dr. Linehan teach the skills will assist me in teaching the skills more effectively. The video series has also provided me with new ideas for various teaching points. The videos are very clear and concise in the teaching style as well as humorous!"--Gwen Anney-Cunningham, CSW
"Dr. Linehan has once again done a masterful job of explaining the concepts in a very understandable manner. I have been teaching this material for 9 years, and by watching these videos, was still able to pick up a number of pointers about teaching it more effectively. I have loaned the videos to clients, and they found them helpful not only for themselves, but they also shared them with other DBT clients and groups. This video series is a great addition to my tool kit to use with my clients (and peers!)."--Beverly Long, DBT Training Coordinator
