Self-Injury (Advanced Parenting Workshop)

Children and teens who self-injure often do so as a way to cope with past trauma or current stress, and to communicate strong emotions. This Advanced Parenting Workshop explores non-suicidal self-injury and other forms of self-harm, including high-risk behavior and hair-pulling. Several short case studies and one in-depth case study are presented and, with the help of Dr. Delaney and his teaching assistant, participants use the Trauma-Sensitive Review Form to understand the children's behavior and develop an action plan.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • describe non-suicidal self-injury, or NSSI
  • understand the differences between NSSI and other forms of self-harm
  • use the Trauma-Sensitive Review Form to understand a child's behavior
  • describe how to use validating statements
  • describe how to mirror a child's feelings
  • develop an action plan to help a child who self-injures or self-harms
(6 credit hours, $30.00 per person). Requires discussion board participation.
