Post-summer recruitment; talking about self-injury and the DSM-5

After a long summer break, I’m getting ready to do some more group discussions this Autumn. Looking forward to hearing more people’s views and opinions on self-harm, drug and alcohol use.

In other news, I’m heading to York next week to present a paper at the British Sociological Association’s Medical Sociology Group Conference. The talk is about diagnosis and ‘non-suicidal self-injury’ (a type of self-harm that is being proposed as a psychiatric diagnosis in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual). It is mainly based on some of my other projects, but I use a few ideas that have come directly from the SASH research project.

Finally – thanks to anyone who has ‘liked’ the Facebook page! It is becoming a slightly less lonely page now!
