Rituals Help you Heal

Rituals Help you Heal.
It inspired me to make my own little altar every year for the people I am missing in my life.
Like a stuffed whale that my mother bought when we went whale watching, a CD with songs by my nephew, a pair of old glasses that belonged to my grandfather, stones, shells and glass beads that remind me of special times together.
There are always flowers and candles.
I will create my altar on Halloween and leave it up for a few days.
I take special care to put all the little pieces back in their usual place.
Every time I create the altar I feel the warmth and love of my loved ones around me and comforted by the notion of celebrating their lives.
Through creating we heal and are able to find new purpose.
What are your rituals that help you heal?

DBT-Informed Art Therapy

DBT-Informed Art Therapy.
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.
