'Plainly, all therapists treating BPD should be knowledgeable about DBT. These [DVD's] are the most efficient way to get acquainted. They are accompanied by detailed program manuals that summarize key points and provide a guide to the literature. Given the deft interweaving of didactic and clinical material and the clarity of the presentation, these [DVD's] also could be used to educate patients and their family members.' - Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
