Understand DBT-informed art therapy, and how to apply it to your practice. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) treats problems with emotion regulation, and is especially effective in treating chronic self-harming and suicidal behaviors associated with Borderline Personality Disorder. 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 gives a comprehensive overview of the growing literature and research on DBT-informed art therapy, drawing upon the work of pioneers in the field to explain different types of DBT-informed art therapy and the 'Three Ms' at its core: Mindfulness, Metaphor and Mastery. It also includes creative visual exercises and activities for developing the skills of core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and non-judgemental acceptance among clients.

Laying out a new integrative approach to the treatment of depression, this book looks at the biological, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of clinical art therapy. Skov presents the theoretical foundation for a Jungian approach to art therapy and depression together with its clinical methodology and framework, outlining a procedure for working with people with mild to moderate depression. Integrative art therapy in clinical practice is introduced alongside case studies from the author's research and practice to show how transformative processes operate in the field between the conscious and the unconscious part of the psyche. Finally the author lays out her research methodology and discusses the possible implications of the integrative art therapy approach. This revolutionary approach, which places equal importance on both art therapy and psychology in the treatment of depression, will be a valuable resource for all art therapists and students working with clients and patients who suffer from depression. Psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals will also find it of interest.

Den Menschen als Einheit verstehen Die Rational-Emotive Verhaltenstherapie (REVT) basiert auf der Annahme, dass Kognition, Emotion und Verhalten niemals getrennt voneinander gedacht werden können: Wenn wir fühlen, so denken und handeln wir auch; wenn wir handeln, so fühlen und denken wir auch, und wenn wir denken, so fühlen und handeln wir auch. Damit ein Mensch eine psychische Störung bewältigen kann, ist also sowohl eine Veränderung seiner Kognitionen als auch seiner emotionalen Reaktionen und Aktivitäten notwendig. Die Praxis der Rational-Emotiven Verhaltenstherapie entwickelt sich ständig weiter. Die Autoren bieten in diesem Buch eine Übersicht über die Theorie der REVT sowie die aktuellsten Informationen über die Praxis und die spezifischen Interventionen, die von REVT-Praktikern auf der ganzen Welt verwendet werden.
