  9. Support Self-Harm Awareness Month this March

    It's important for practitioners to remember that when clients hate themselves, it resonates to hurt themselves.

Working with clients to approach their self-harm with compassion, helping them understand why they do what they do, and then offering them other ways to communicate, self-regulate, and cope, are the major cornerstones of treatment." - Lisa Ferentz, author of Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors
