I received these handouts while attending a training a few months ago. Unfortunately, I see a lot clients who self-injure. Their parents often have lots of questions and misconceptions regarding the topic.
I like this Q and A format and thought it would be helpful to share with parents and teachers. I’ve also had conversations with teens who don’t know how to help their friends who self-injure. So, if you’re reading this post, share with your children even if self-injurious behaviors are not a problem for them. You might end up giving your teen valuable information they can use to help a peer in need.
