Most self-injurious behavior is related to early experiences of sexual, physical and emotional/verbal abuse. The adolescent stage of development is where self-injury typically starts. By understanding the causes and meanings of self-injurious behavior, caregivers can provide the early support necessary for youth to avoid long-term psychological problems. This training is designed to explore the idea, causes and effects of self-injurious behavior. Upon completion of the training, participants will have a basic understanding of how and why clients engage in self-injurious behavior. Participants will also have a set of strategies to respond to the needs of those clients.
