Supporting Self Care: A new therapy for self-harm is being trialled by a CLAHRC EoE study

A new therapy to support young people who experience self-harm is being trialled by study: “Imaginator”. ”Imaginator” offers a brief psychological intervention called functional imagery training. The face-to-face therapy is also supported by a smart-phone app, so that participants will continue practicing the techniques that they learn in therapy. This app was developed in collaboration with a young person’s advisory group who had lived experience of self-harm and it encourages participants to improve their self-care.
