I’ve been working on a post about self-injurious behaviors for a few days now, but I realized this morning I need some feedback from all of you before I proceed. If you aren’t comfortable commenting here, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everything anyone tells me will remain confidential, unless you specifically tell me I may quote you. If you are comfortable with my quoting you, be sure to tell me!
Have you or anyone you know engaged in self-injurious behaviors?
Can you describe the behavior?
What was done?
Did it help?
If not, did it make it worse?
Was there anything that did help?
If so, what?
If you have witnessed someone who self injured did anyone speak to you about how you felt being a witness? If so, was it helpful? If not, do you think it would have been?
All comments on this topic are welcome, even if they do not answer any of these questions.
Thanks so much and have a great weekend everyone!
