Dr. Lader did a very in depth perspective on the issues that are confronting our family. The bullet points and explainations have given me guidance on how we as a family have to work on this together. Discovery was the first, now the healing and dealing of this siuatio is an ardeous task that we need to pursue and endure.
Thank you so much for your insight. Very much appreciate the tool given here.

I just found out this morning that my 14 yr. old son started cutting himself,the way I found out was thanks to my 19 yr old daughter being a mini me which sometimes gets on my nerves, I now thank God she is the way she is, told me she found her eye brow razor in her brothers room & that he's wearing more of those rubber bracelets, I seen him wearing them & thought nothing of it cause they are the thing with kids,plus 1 is for a cousin of mine who has cancer, you know CANCER SUCKS,Shine God's Light,Peace,Angry Birds & things like that. I called him into the kitchen & yelled let me see!The look on his face was scared, he tried to get away from me & I kept yelling at him "What is your problem!?Do you enjoy it!?Does it make feel like a man!?Are you trying to be like other people getting attention!? Do you need attention!?" Then I went to my room & cried wondering what did I do wrong as a parent.I went on google found this site, I now know I went about it all wrong & this video was very helpful to me & now I know the steps I need to take 1st & hopefully it will all be ok so THANK YOU DR.LADER!!!

I found out that my daughter has been cutting herself for nearly a year now. Although, I did not freak out when she told me (It took her a long time to get the words out and I was aware this was exactly what she did not need) I was worried as I did not know what to do next. This webinar has given the understanding I needed to be able to deal with the situation in a constructive way. I am very thankful to Dr Lader & co for making this video accessible.

This was a great overview of the information on self injury. We needed some immediate guidance for our family. I feel I now have tools to use and great advice about the steps to take next. I have direction now instead of feeling helpless.

I have just found out that one of my adult (in her mid 30s) friends is a self-mutilator. Although power point often reminds of the filmstrips we saw in elementary school; the information here is clearly presented. It gave me food for thought and a desire to learn more about what kind of help my friend needs. Ideas on how to approach her were helpful, too.
