DBT and Art for Youth Suicide Prevention

When Art Saves Lives

Foreword By
Using art therapy, lived experience, and DBT skills in combination, this book offers insight into how, together, these methods can help prevent youth suicide. Practical advice for professionals and case studies will result in increased confidence in using DBT with young people. In this helpful and empowering book, readers are guided through the background, theory, and use of art therapy and DBT as a positive intervention. Schorr exemplifies these practices through The Arts in Recovery for Youth (AIRY) model - an art therapy model informed by research in suicidology and best practices in suicide prevention.

Practical resources and a wide range of art therapy directives are included in order to seamlessly integrate DBT-informed art therapy into caring and therapeutic work with evidence-based measurable outcomes.
