Webinar Overview

Self-injury (SI) can be anxiety-provoking and intimidating to professional counselors, and, nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a potentially dangerous and complex treatment issue that can be difficult to predict and address therapeutically. Studies have demonstrated that the severity or frequency of current and overall lifetime NSSI, combined with the current and lifetime number of self-injury methods, may predict suicidal ideation. As such, it is imperative that mental health professionals are able to identify, assess and respond appropriately to suicide risk. However, clinical and ethical decision-making in the treatment of SI is rarely straightforward, thus this online webinar will address all aspects and considerations.
