Workshops for Family and Friends:

We are in the process of creating educational workshops for family and friends of those who are engaging in self-injurious behaviors.  We would appreciate learning about any questions you might have about self-injury in general or even more specific concerns, such as “How do I respond when someone I care about_________________________?” (fill in the blank)

…. Also,  Self-injurers… please let us know what you would like us to teach your parents, friends or other loved ones about self-injury and how they can best respond to your needs.  What works and what doesn’t work?

Please e-mail as many questions as you would like to  We hope to make these workshops available ONLINE in the next month or two. The schedule will be posted on this website.  If you would like to be notified when they become available, please indicate your interest in an e-mail and we will be happy to notify you.
