Whether the behavior is cutting, burning, piercing, starving, purge, or some other method. Self-harming behaviors and the emotions underlying them know no bounds with respect to race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic class, or gender. Feelings of shame and embarrassment can cause those who engage in self-injury to privately console themselves or befriend other self-injurious peers, which can further intensify the lethality and suicidal intent of their acts. Studies show that professionals who work with adults and youth who self-injure find it to be one of the most challenging psychological issues to treat.
Along with other co-morbid psychiatric disorders including major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, and substance abuse, David Kamen, PhD, will equip you with practical, evidence-based tools to assess and treat deliberate self- harm. Risk-management practices for self-injury patients, their parents, families, and friends will be addressed.
