Working with teens who engage in self-injury can be challenging. Mental health practitioners must understand the purpose of self-injurious behavior before therapy can be successful. Identifying the goal of self-injury can be a complicated task, because teens who self-injure are often resistant to therapy and have difficulty establishing trust. Thus, therapists must find a way to establish a positive rapport. Ruth will discuss current research in the area of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), as well as the challenging family dynamics and psychosocial issues that are often present among teens who self-injure. Engaging activities will be illustrated for use in individual, group, and family therapy.
