Let's Talk about SIB ~ Self Injurious Behaviours
**Please note** This meeting is part of a UBC Research Study and is reserved for parents/primary caregivers of a person with Self Injurious Behaviours. A Consent Form and Survey will need to be done after registration

Self-Injurious behaviour can be defined as: self-directed injury that is non-suicidal in nature and causes physical trauma. These isolating behaviours may affect children with intellectual impairment, autism or other forms of neurodiversity. SIB is a multifaceted behaviour that is difficult to understand and treat as the diagnosis varies across individuals. Currently, proper evidence-based care does not exist, so it can be extremely challenging to care for children with severe SIB.

Are you a parent/primary caregiver of a person with Self Injurious Behaviours? Are you passionate about taking your learning to the next level? As a parent/primary caregiver do you want to learn more on how to support yourself and your child? We are bringing to you a unique 6-part series to learn and explore ways to support families and their children. These six sessions are meant to promote education around severe SIB, to create a supportive SIB community, as well as to advocate for better health outcomes.
