520    Marsha Linehan tells the story of her journey from 
       suicidal teenager to world-renowned developer of the life-
       saving behavioral therapy DBT, using her own struggle to 
       develop life skills for others. 
520    “'Are you one of us?' a patient once asked Marsha Linehan
       , the world-renowned psychologist who developed 
       dialectical behavior therapy. “Because if you were, it 
       would give all of us so much hope.”   Over the years, DBT 
       had saved the lives of countless people fighting 
       depression and suicidal thoughts, but Linehan had never 
       revealed that her pioneering work was inspired by her own 
       desperate struggles as a young woman. Only when she 
       received this question did she finally decide to tell her 
       story.  In this remarkable and inspiring memoir, Linehan 
       describes how, when she was eighteen years old, she began 
       an abrupt downward spiral from popular teenager to 
       suicidal young woman. After several miserable years in a 
       psychiatric institute, Linehan made a vow that if she 
       could get out of emotional hell, she would try to find a 
       way to help others get out of hell too, and to build a 
       life worth living.  She went on to put herself through 
       night school and college, living at the YWCA and often 
       scraping together spare change to buy food. She went on to
       get her PhD in psychology, specializing in behavior 
       therapy. In the 1980s, she achieved a breakthrough when 
       she developed Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, a 
       therapeutic approach that combines acceptance of the self 
       and ways to change. Linehan included mindfulness as a key 
       component in therapy treatment, along with original and 
       specific life-skill techniques. She says, "You can't think
       yourself into new ways of acting; you can only act 
       yourself into new ways of thinking."  Throughout her 
       extraordinary scientific career, Marsha Linehan remained a
       woman of deep spirituality. Her powerful and moving story 
       is one of faith and perseverance. Linehan shows, in 
       Building a Life Worth Living, how the principles of DBT 
       really work—and how, using her life skills and techniques,
       people can build lives worth living."--|cPublisher's
