About the Author

Robert L. Leahy and Dennis Tirch, both at the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, USA and Lisa A. Napolitano, CBT/DBT Associates, New York, USA and New York University School of Medicine, New York, USA


"Thank you, Leahy, Napolitano, and Tirch, for providing clinicians everywhere with a systematic means for helping clients develop emotion regulation skills. Most clients present with difficulties in managing their emotions, but there is a startling lack of useful materials to guide therapists. This invaluable book fills the gap, and is sure to be a resource that clinicians will reach for frequently as they develop treatment plans, adjust therapy programs during the course of treatment, and teach clients skills to use in their everyday lives. The book is complete with structured exercises, guidelines for treatment, and strategies for overcoming difficulties that routinely arise in-session." - Dean McKay, Fordham University, New York, USA "This book is a unique contribution to the literature; one that is particularly important given the pervasiveness of emotion regulation problems across multiple disorders. I highly recommend it." - Marsha M. Linehan, University of Washington, USA
