About the Author

Susan Clark has been an art therapist and counsellor for over 18 years. She possesses extensive experience in leading standard didactic DBT and DBT-informed art therapy skills training groups. Susan is based at The Emily Program in Cleveland, Ohio.


This book provides everything (from theory to practice), that an art therapist needs in order to teach DBT skills. The art therapy activities described in this book offer an alternative and creative way to reach our clients with DBT. On top of that, Clark is a great writer! A pleasure to read. -- Lucene Wisniewski, PhD, FAED, Case Western Reserve University and The Emily Program
Susan Clark's fine book is a comprehensive plea for expanding known treatment strategies for formidable disorders of emotion regulation by including treatments that help patients express what words cannot say. She provides an astounding array of creative art activities that, when combined with more traditional talk therapy, bring the power of art, metaphor, paradox, and each client's unique creative sensibility into the therapeutic process. -- Dr. Betty Edwards, Professor Emeritus in Art, California State University, Long Beach and author of 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain'
