Informed by the principles and practices of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), this book presents skills training guidelines specifically designed for adults with cognitive challenges. Clinicians learn how to teach core emotion regulation and adaptive coping skills in a framework that promotes motivation and mastery for all learners, and that helps clients apply what they have learned in daily life. The book features ideas for scaffolding learning, a sample 12-week group curriculum that can also be used in individual skills training, and numerous practical tools, including 150 reproducible handouts and worksheets. The large-size format facilitates photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

Reviews:

“Buy this book and you will return to it again and again. Brown’s Skills System offers a concise, ultra-pragmatic skills training approach with comprehensive, step-by-step curriculum materials great for teaching emotion regulation to learners of all abilities. Both experienced and novice skills trainers will love this toolkit of teaching strategies!”

—Kelly Koerner, PhD, Evidence-Based Practice Institute, Seattle

“This is an exceptionally useful curriculum for all practitioners who work with individuals who have intellectual impairments co-occurring with significant challenging behaviors. Brown's approach to DBT skills training has been demonstrated to be very helpful for treating emotional dysregulation while accommodating this population's complex needs. An important and insightful book.”

—Robert J. Fletcher, DSW, ACSW, Founder and CEO, NADD (National Association for the Dually Diagnosed)

“Brown provides a clear, step-by-step introduction to the emotion regulation skills curriculum that she has developed over two decades of work with individuals with learning challenges and emotional difficulties. Brown succeeds admirably where few others have even dared to set foot. Complex emotion regulation challenges are broken down into manageable problems using a series of steps that people at many different skill levels can apply. At once simple and sophisticated, this guide is a 'must.'”

—James J. Gross, PhD, Department of Psychology, Stanford University

“In this much-needed volume, Brown expertly translates basic concepts from DBT, using simple language, clear handouts, appealing visual icons, and inviting worksheets. Her curriculum helps individuals to regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors based on their level of emotional arousal and the situation. Brown's use of simple terms such as Clear Me, On Track Thinking, On Track Action, and New Me Activities facilitates skills acquisition, and the week-by-week teaching guide provides skills trainers with a user-friendly structure to implement the program. Especially helpful to the reader is Brown's discussion of multiple theoretical models that form the foundation of the Skills System.”

—Jill H. Rathus, PhD, Department of Psychology, Long Island University—C. W. Post Campus

“This book is a clinically sensitive, research-informed presentation of how DBT skills training can be employed with clients with intellectual challenges. Detailed descriptions of training sessions are accompanied by user-friendly handouts and worksheets. All professionals working with this population will benefit from this thoughtful work. Kudos to Julie Brown!”

—Donald Meichenbaum, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo, Canada; Research Director, The Melissa Institute for Violence Prevention, Miami, Florida

“Anyone attempting to teach emotion regulation skills to individuals with intellectual challenges must read this user-friendly book, since many of the standard manuals miss the mark with this population. Brown’s vast clinical wisdom shines through in her developmentally appropriate teaching examples, discussion points, and handouts.”

—Alec L. Miller, PsyD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
