    05/31/2009 - For Australians, A Study (Completed)

    Rate this news item:

    • As on the old main page, I’ll try to update with notices of studies and perhaps relevant self-injury community news (if it’s sent to me).

      The aim of the study is to learn, in the absence of any effective treatment, why people stop using self-harm. Hopefully if we can capture this, we may be able to apply this to other people who want to stop using self-injury. In order for the study to be successful I need participants who have never self-injured, who are currently self-injuring and who have previously self-injured.

      To do the study all people have to do is go to (link removed, as it is completed) they must be Australian so we can control for cultural differences.

    Without taking care of the issues that started long ago she will probably have a difficult time recovering. Self-injury is often just a symptom, a way of coping. Addressing the underlying causes can be beneficial.
