RESOURCE MANUAL – Self-Injury Behavior in Youth
Self-injury refers to deliberate, self-inflicted tissue damage, such as cutting or burning. Self-injury has reached alarming proportions amongst our youth; studies show that 14-24% of adolescents and young adults have engaged in this behavior at least once, with a quarter of these reporting current, chronic self-injury. Helping professionals are therefore increasingly encountering young people who are involved with self-injury. This manual begins with a general overview to assist participants in understanding the experience and motivations of adolescents who intentionally injure themselves. The content will then focus on practical strategies for working with youth struggling with this complex issue. Readers will develop increased insight regarding self-injury behavior in youth and a framework for effective intervention. 64 pages.
