Self-injury, although it may seem temporarily helpful, is ultimately a dangerous and futile coping strategy which interferes with intimacy, productivity and happiness. There is no “safe” or “healthy” amount of self-injury. We also believe that self-injury is not a compulsion which one is powerless over for a lifetime. People can and do stop injuring themselves with the right kinds of help and support. Self-injury can be transformed from a seemingly uncontrollable compulsion to a choice. In this workshop, you will learn the risk-factors involved with SE and develop an arsenal of coping skills to aid those suffering from SE.
