Marsha M Linehan, Ph.D.

2008 DBT Workshop in Seoul

When I teach my graduate students—who work with complex, difficult-to-treat individuals at high risk for suicide—I always remind them that they can choose whether to look out for themselves or to look out for their clients, but they cannot always do both. If they want to look out for themselves at a possible cost to their clients, I remind them that they are in the wrong profession.

I dedicate this book to all those who have found the courage to carry on this work at a possible cost to themselves.…..”
