The free event starts at 7.30pm.

Listen to a free public talk at The Watershed on Friday at 6.30pm – entitled “Why do you treat me this way?” Consultant psychotherapist Christopher Scanlon will discuss what constitutes 'self-harm' and how this terminology is related to underlying and problematic assumptions of 'normal behaviour' in modern society. He will explore psychosocial and clinical perspectives on self-harm and other forms of 'reflexive violence'.
