Welcome to Healing Self-Injury!

Welcome to the rebirth of the web site previously hosted by the Sidran Institute for Traumatic Stress Education and Advocacy (sidran.org).  This has been quite the journey!  When our previous web site, healingselfinjury.org, came to a crashing halt it seemed to be an opportune time to reflect on what to do next…  After nearly three decades of focus on this topic I wasn’t sure if my work was necessary or relevant, perhaps other directions were calling.

I soon learned that the resources you will find here, especially the writings and art created by people over so many years, are not only wanted but needed in our times.  So here we go!  Rebirth is exciting and quite the challenge.  My intention is to get the structure in place, a blog created, some resources posted and get us going.  I will add resources over time and would greatly appreciate your guidance, contributions, and suggestions.  I look forward to hearing from you!
