Creative DBT Activities Using Music
Interventions for Enhancing Engagement and Effectiveness in Therapy
Deborah Spiegel, Suzanne Makary, Lauren Bonavitacola
This book provides clinicians (particularly those specialising in DBT) with music activities and creative ideas to implement with existing practices, to strengthen what clients are being taught in DBT skills groups. These new ideas can be used with clients individually, in groups, or be given as homework.
The first part of the book consists of group activities for therapists and group leaders to use. In part two each DBT skill is presented with its own activity, written in with clear step by step instructions. The skills gained will be particularly beneficial for individuals who have difficulty regulating or dealing with their emotions and this guide improves clinicians' confidence and skill in aiding these individuals innumerably.
