The Mindful Elf

The Distressed Elf

The Emotional Elf

The Interpersonal Elf

The following images are printed with gratitude and permission from Abbey Press. They come from parts of two of the Elf Help book series, 'Be Good to Yourself Therapy' by Cherry Hartman and 'Slow down Therapy' by Linus Mundy, both books illustrated by R.W. Alley.
Don't be fooled by their small size. They are wonderfully heartwarming and encouraging.  You'll want to read them over and over.
Some of their other publications include
'Acceptance Therapy'
'Keeping up your Spirits Therapy'
'Play Therapy'
'One day at a time Therapy'
How they relate to DBT skills are mine.
They are available at bookstores or directly from the publisher at
