Dr. Cho started DBT for Korean immigrants in New York since 2000. He translated each worksheet in ‘DBT Skills Training Workbook’ written by Dr. Marsha Linehan and conducted DBT skills training group sessions for clients.
When he came back to Korea in 2003, he translated ‘DBT Skills Training Manual’ and published in 2007 through a Korean publisher.
It was important to ensure that the translated terminologies were applicable with clinical significance for the clients in Korea. Once the clients were treated and showed improvements in symptoms using the translated manual, the final draft of the publication was completed.
Dr. Marsha Linehan was the bestseller author in the US and her books were used by more than 20 million professionals. She gave her congratulations for the publication of her book in Korea.
“I was impressed with Dr. Cho’s energy and effort in embracing the DBT, and I’m very glad that he did so. Many people simply want to apply the skills in DBT to their situations straight away. It is uncommon for people to truly master the treatment. It is critical that clinicians learn and use the evidence-based psychotherapy according to its manual.
I could not imagine that the two DBT manuals would be published in countries other than the US and the UK. In particular, I did not think that it would be published in Korea. From now on, individuals with complex psychological disorders and borderline personality disorder would be treated with DBT, which would not have been possible if the translated books were not published.”
