Shadow Flying In Daylight

An interesting article from the BBC about a program in the UK designed to help self-harm folks to learn new coping skills

Including, that while they're under supervised care, they are allowed to continue their self harm - as removing that coping skill can be dangerous without adding replacements - but teaches them proper wound care and transitional coping skills like using ice cubes to simulate the feeling of cutting (something that worked for me fairly well).

No major triggers in the article that I saw, aside from it being about cutting.

Here's hoping this new program advances current treatments...
