Self-Injury – More than Self-Mutilation and Cutting (3HR)

There are MANY reasons why individuals “choose” to injure themselves. Is it a choice? The definition of self-harm is the deliberate infliction of damage or alteration to oneself often WITHOUT suicidal intent, by those with eating disorders, mental illness, a history of trauma, emotional and/or sexual abuse, and personality traits such as low self-esteem or perfectionism. This training is designed to support professionals who work directly with those who engage in self-harm to learn information and gather tools to use to understand and support those with a self-injury experience. We will review celebrities who are in recovery from self-harm.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand distinct reasons for self-injurious behaviors
  • Assess clients regarding the possibility of leading to them engaging in self-injurious behaviors
  • Know which types of self-injury are most common
  • Educate clients and their loved ones about self-injurious behaviors

Social workers completing this course receive 3 Clinical asynchronous continuing education credits.

For other board approvals, this course qualifies for 3 hours of Clinical, Evidence-Based Practices, and General Skill Building continuing education training.
