Drawing on principles and practices of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), this guide outlines skills training for youth and adults with cognitive challenges in outpatient or residential settings, explaining how to teach core emotion regulation and adaptive coping skills in a framework that promotes motivation and mastery for all learners and helps clients apply skills to everyday life. It provides background information on emotion regulation, intellectual disabilities, and cognitive load theory, as well as a 12-week curriculum and visual aid skills for trainers providing instruction. It describes each of the nine skills and tools in the system, the theoretical foundations, teaching strategies, and how support providers can be skills coaches.
