Counselor Support Workshop: The Neuroscience of Self-Harm and Risk Management
Non-suicidal self-harm and suicidal ideation are often taboo topics. With the increasing amount of stress our young people face in our rapidly changing world, it is imperative that risk screening and management of risk factors become normalized. Identifying the risk factors, naming the issue, and discussing the topic can help to destigmatize the maladaptive coping behavior and put the young person on the path to healing.
Objectives: In this workshop, the learners will:
· Learn about the factors that put young people at risk for self-injury
· Learn about the different types of self-harm
· Learn the difference between non-suicidal self-injury and suicide attempts
· Learn the neuroscience behind the function and maintenance of the behavior
· Learn methods of assessing and addressing risk of self-harm
