Doctor Marsha Linehan is known worldwide for her pioneering treatment of suicidal patients and for her own mental health struggles.
Now, the renowned psychologist will describe her personal and professional journey – in a memoir.
Random House says the book’s working title is “The Vow: From Hell …to A Life Worth Living.”
Linehan will collaborate with the acclaimed author and scientist Roger Lewin.
The 69 year old Linehan is the developer of “Dialectical Behavior Therapy” or D.B.T.
She revealed last year that she too, had suffered from borderline personality disorder and had often tried to take her own life.
The book is due to come out in the fall of 2013.
