I entered CCT studies with the intention of obtaining a degree which would complement my previous studies in Psychology and allow me to later further my education. During the program I personally encountered a family member’s participation in Non-Suicidal Self-Injury and set my goal on promoting awareness. During this process I found that my efforts were unsuccessful. My focus then turned to reviewing my previous insufficient attempts. During this process I discovered myself as my own block and had to start looking at my approach and myself in order to make forward progress. I ultimately made progress although the progress was only the beginning stages of a process that will continue into the future. The paper is written in a serious of passes where I return to the principles of Action Research to discover what needs to be addressed further in order to make forward progress, all the while learning to become more reflective.
