Webinar- Non-suicidal Self-injury in Adolescents @ Webinar

There has been an explosion of self-harm among teenagers in the last 10 years. Why?

Medical Professions: Nurses, Psychiatrists, Pediatricians, Family Doctors. Direct Service Workers: Child and Youth Workers. This webinar will define a new (DSM-V) syndrome, called Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Disorder. The epidemiology and prevalence will be described, along with an explanation of the underlying root causes of self-harm. The central roles of social media, emotion dysregulation, and insecure attachment will be outlined. NSSI has a complex and nuanced relationship to actual suicide attempts, along with borderline personality disorder. Those relationships will be clarified. Finally, the evidence for various treatment approaches will be explained, so that clinicians can feel empowered to make rational decisions when encountering this distressing problem. Learning Objectives: Define the criteria for Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Disorder, and describe its prevalence/epidemiology. Understand the reasons why teenagers hurt themselves. Describe the role and function of NSSI. Clarify the relationship between NSSI and suicidal behaviour; between NSSI and BPD. Understand which treatment approaches work with NSSI.
