“Full of concrete tools to make successful progress in treatment! The research provides a great foundation for the use of the materials and Dr. Fox has pulled from multiple resources to create tools clinicians and clients can both use to promote wellness and growth. I have found that the use of the workbook can be applicable in nearly every session I have with someone battling with a Cluster B personality disorder. After applying the concepts in this workbook I have found that Cluster B clients are not the same beasts in treatment that they were in the past."

“Insightful for the therapist and easy-to-use with clients. The worksheets are very effective in assisting with a more accurate diagnosis of Cluster B personality types and, even more importantly, understanding the therapists own responses to the client (recognizing countertransference/treatment issues). This workbook is also helpful when needing to incorporate more tangible and structured treatment approaches into therapy. The DBT worksheets are easy to follow and use “client friendly” language and concepts."
-Meagan N. Houston, PhD, SAP
“The collection of exercises for the clinician and the client are practical, useful, and empirically driven. This is a well written, easy to read, and thorough guide providing a framework and a level of confidence for the clinician facing the challenges of treating severe personality disorders."
-Kristy Dromgoole, PhD
“This rich resource assists the clinician in avoiding errors in diagnosis that can often occur when working with clients with complex symptom presentations. Dr. Fox presents the material in a straightforward, easy-to-digest, manner that can be appreciated and utilized by all practitioners. Clinicians, regardless of their training background or theoretical orientation, will find this to be an invaluable resource in the diagnosis and treatment of Cluster B personality disorders."
-Mary Madison Eagle, PhD
“Dr. Fox's passion for this subject shines through in the workbook format. This workbook can serve as both a reference and a helpful tool for gathering information. Dr. Fox’s style of writing is clear and concise. I was able to take in the information quickly and see how useful the worksheets could be."
-Kristin A. Lue King, MSW
"Personality disorders are common in clinical practice, but helpful resources are not. Dr. Fox answers the call with a workbook that will deepen your understanding of the assessment and treatment of Cluster B personalities, with a dedicated emphasis on handouts and worksheets that guide therapy and provide a catalyst for change. Enthusiastically recommended!"
