Review:

"Marsha Linehan's tremendously in-depth and informative book and its companion skills-training manual offer a needed guide to the cognitive-behavioral treatment of borderline personality disorder....Her method has become so widely used by clinicians that the experts in psychosocial treatments consider it one of the best....Marsha Linehan's methods are highly eclectic because they are empirically based; they have been fashioned to fit what works best for borderline patients."--Lester Luborsky, PhD

"Dr. Linehan's approach is sensible, pragmatic, and effective. Most importantly, it offers the therapist a humane and sensitive perspective on persons with Borderline Personality Disorder. In short, it treats both the therapist and the client in a fashion that produces results."--Mark Ciocca, PhD, Central New Hampshire Community Mental Health Center

"...user-friendly manual well grounded in principle, detailed in its strategies, and exportable to a wide range of treatment settings."--Charles R. Swenson, MD, New York Hospital, Westchester Division
