  1. Self-Identity after Brain Injury

    'This book represents a seismic shift in thinking about brain injury and its consequences.' - Skye McDonald

    An injury to the brain can affect virtually any aspect of functioning and, at the deepest level, can alter sense of self or the essential qualities that define who we are. In recent years, there has been a growing body of research investigating changes to self in the context of brain injury. Developments in the cognitive and social neurosciences, psychotherapy and neurorehabilitation have together provided a rich perspective on self and identity reformation after brain injury.

In this groundbreaking volume a number of internationally recognized researchers, working across a range of disciplines, provide a detailed examination of women’s attempts to counter-story their lives when prevailing discourses are unhelpful or, indeed, harmful.

  10. Support Self-Harm Awareness Month this March

    It's important for practitioners to remember that when clients hate themselves, it resonates to hurt themselves. Self-harming behaviors evoke tremendous shame, which fuels self-hatred and perpetuates the cycle. 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
