I’m happy to share a relatively new Canadian web resource now up and running headed by Dr. Stephen Lewis from the University of Guelph and Dr. Nancy Health from McGill University. Both have been conducting valuable research in the field along with their team.
The website, Self-injury Outreach & Support, is a collaboration between the two universities and can be found at www.sioutreach.org.
It’s been a while since I’ve written. The mid and late fall were taken up with seeing clients and with supervision meetings–preparing for what did end up being my final exam to complete my registration for autonomous practice with the College of Psychologists here in Ontario.

I’m unfolding from all of this and am both getting back to routines, as well as consciously and deliberately working to create some new ones.
Today I would like to share a quote from a wonderful little book I read in the fall by Jon Kabat-Zinn called Arriving at Your Own Door: 108 Lessons in Mindfulness. Read more ›
