Abstract

This study offers a theoretical intervention model that shows how increasing self-compassion can be beneficial in the treatment of persons with suicidal behavior and which art therapy therapeutic factors help to do so. The study was directly focused on the target group of clients with suicidal behavior. However, the purpose of the study is not to generalize the target group, but to find the therapeutic factors of intervention for cultivating self-compassion and overcoming suicidality.

The intervention proposed in this article uses a three-step art therapy model for cultivating self-compassion and overcoming suicidality. The study was conducted with five suicidal people and consisted of eight individual 60-minute sessions once a week. Qualitative methods (semi-structured individual interviews) were used to identify therapeutic factors behind the art-therapy process.
