Understanding Non-Suicidal Self-Injury and Increasing Safety:
A Trauma-Informed Approach

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) has increased over the past 10 years, especially among children and adolescents.  This training course is ideal for clinicians and school-based staff who want to better understand ways to support students who have urges and engage in NSSI. The presenter will challenge misconceptions about how discussions surrounding NSSI are approached.  Training participants will learn about the features of NSSI and have the opportunity to discuss risk and protective factors influential in the increase or reduction of NSSI in youth.  The course will review trauma-informed interview questions and interventions with the goal of generating comprehensive safety plan efforts.  Participants will engage in discussions surrounding ways to best communicate with students, caregivers, and coordinate continuity of care with other educational staff and community-based resources.
