PRAISE FOR "The Skills System Instructor's Guide" "In this instructor's guide, Julie Brown provides a clear step-by-step introduction to the emotion regulation skills curriculum that she has developed over the course of two decades of work with individuals with learning challenges and emotional difficulties.

At once simple and sophisticated, this guide is a must for anyone who works with, or cares for, someone with emotion regulation difficulties." -James J. Gross, PhD, professor of psychology, Stanford University; editor, "Handbook of Emotion Regulation" "This practical Skills Training Handbook fills a critical need of providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy based techniques and related treatment procedures to individuals with emotional and intellectual challenges.
