Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Webinar

Posted on

Developmental Resources Presents
Between 13 and 25 percent of youth ages 11-25 self-injure, according to research. Exact figures are inconclusive since self-injury is often done in secret and goes undetected unless an adolescent is being treated for a related condition. More recent trends suggest that self-injurious behaviors in adolescents and young adults are on the rise.

Young people who deliberately do harm to their own bodies are often misunderstood. The underlying contributing factors that lead to self-mutilation are sometimes very complex and easily overlooked. Without effective intervention, self-harm is likely to continue and may escalate in frequency, duration and/or intensity. The addictive nature of the self-mutilation cycle may lead young people to engage in dangerous compulsions that can have shattering consequences.

During this research-based 90-minute webinar, Kaye Randall, MSW, LISW-CP (and co-author of See My Pain! Creative Strategies & Activities for Helping Young People Who Self-Injure) will provide fresh understandings and innovative approaches that can be used to connect with and help these students. Educators will learn how to approach this sometimes puzzling behavior within the school setting.

Listen to Kaye Randall address some of the most frequently asked questions concerning self-injury.

What You Will Learn:
