Self-injury refers to deliberate, self-inflicted tissue damage, such as cutting or burning. Self-injury has reached alarming proportions amongst our youth, with North American studies indicating adolescent prevalence of between 14 and 18 percent. This webinar will provide a general overview of self-injury: what it is, what causes it and how it helps those who engage in it. Information regarding common warning signs along with the cycle of self-injury will further assist participants in understanding the experience and motivations of adolescents who intentionally injure themselves.
