Group Therapy

Shaken Baby Syndrome Support

MY CHOICE Self-Harm Psychotherapy Group

Held by the Waukesha County Victim Witness Program
Facilitated by Erin Hardy, LCSW

People often think of self-harm as "cutting". Self-harm, also called Non-Suicidal Self Injury and Self-Injurious Behavior, goes beyond cutting and includes several other behaviors.
 
Self-harm is not only a problem for teenagers. It occurs in both youths and adults and affects males almost as equally as females.
 
MY CHOICE is a 12 week group for individuals who self-harm and want to stop. Sessions are once per week for 90 minutes. If you or someone you know is engaging in self-harm, even in a way that may be considered minor,  there are benefits to be gained from this group.
Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), also known as Abusive Head Trauma results from vigorously shaking a child or striking the child's head against a surface in an aggressive manner. WI ranks 4th highest in the US in the number of SBS cases (Medill Justice Project, 2013).
 
This support group offers a safe environment for victims and families affected by SBS to share their stories and connect with other families.
 
It is held the first Wednesday of the month (September-May) from 6pm-7:30pm at the Waukesha County Courthouse, Room G-55.
 
Please contact Kristi at 262-548-7908 to attend.
 
The courthouse is located at 515 W. Moreland Blvd.
