Collected Parenting: Using Attachment to Care for Self-Injury is an eight-week psychoeducational counselling group that was designed to support those who are caring for an adolescent who engages in non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). The group content was developed based off of a comprehensive literature review on self-injury and attachment informed parenting. The Collected Parenting Group was developed to provide caregivers with education about NSSI, a space for them to receive support from peers and mental health professionals, as well as education about attachment informed parenting and practical strategies for using it to care for and manage NSSI. A group leader’s manual is provided to guide the organizing, content structure, marketing and facilitation of the Collected Parenting Group.
