Skillful Means in Action
Responding to growing interest in DBT-informed art therapy, this edited guide focuses specifically on how these interventions can treat a variety of client groups. Combining the structure and skill development of DBT with the creativity and non-verbal communication of art therapy can be a significant advantage in treating patients who are resistant to talking therapy. This book includes international contributors who cover work with a wide variety of populations, such as those with suicidal behaviours, eating disorders, and personality disorders. Divided in two parts, Part I focuses purely on DBT-informed art therapy, whilst Part II brings in multi-modal DBT-informed approaches, such as poetry and movement, but all with visual art as a component.
