With over 90 attendees, this was the largest meeting of the group to date, with national and international researchers and clinicians attending and presenting, including attendees from Canada, Belgium, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Britain.
Whitlock, Purington, and Morgan presented a poster of emerging findings from CRPSIB's recovery interview project, Theoretical Models of Recovery and Their Application to Recovery from Non-Suicidal Self-Injury, in which they described the development of a six-stage model of recovery from non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI).
