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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Clark and her impressive co-authors have created a gem: a book that concretely demonstrates how expressive arts therapists in dozens of clinical settings help troubled and dysregulated clients to personally connect with crucial skills and therapeutic processes in DBT. The case studies alone are worth the price of admission. It inspired me to learn how these modalities help clients to personalize and play with such important concepts as emptiness, mindfulness, dialectics, radical acceptance, metaphor, and so many others. If I could start over in my DBT career, I would immerse myself in the uses of poetry, song, visual arts, clay-based art, and artistic collaborations to bring home the evidence-based treatment to which I have devoted my career. This is a wonderful book with rich detail and illustrations of some of the work the clients have done. -- Charles Swenson, M.D. Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School
This book provides an interesting and useful insight into the use of DBT and art therapy in the treatment of people with severe or chronic mental health issues. There are clear presentations and examples of how to apply the method with different collectives. -- Rosa Mesa, Art Therapist and Multidisciplinary Artist
I thank Susan Clark for inviting me to learn about DBT-informed art therapy, something I was reluctant to do since I was aware of an explicitly negative bias. I now realize that my ideas were actually distorted, and am delighted to recommend that art therapists explore the creative interventions in this inspiring volume. -- Judith A. Rubin, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM, Curator, Expressive Media Film Library, Editor, Approaches to Art Therapy; Director, "Art Therapy Has Many Faces"
