The internet offers a rich provision of material supporting self-help activities. I will add some pages I have harvested over the years. Where possible, I will explain why the material is included and comment on the ways in which the material might help with designing safe experiments.
I have mentioned Dr Dan Seigel in my main blog; his insightful material can be found at:

That said, none of my blog material is copied from these programmes. What I am saying to you is all my own work. I have no financial or professional interest in any of the Internet Resources mentioned on this page.
These are the routes back to the main material in this blog:
