Learn the essential, evidence-based knowledge and skills needed to help support youth in your schools who engage in non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). Based upon current best practice, this workshop will use a combination of lecture, small group discussion, and role plays to provide participants with foundational skills for assessing and intervening with youth who self-injure. After ensuring all have a basic understanding of current knowledge about NSSI in youth, the workshop will teach an evidence-based assessment model, review a NSSI and suicide risk conceptualization framework, provide practical intervention strategies, and briefly present guidelines for school policy related to self-injury. Participant active engagement and questions are expected and encouraged.
