Self-injury refers to deliberate, self-inflicted tissue damage such as cutting or burning. Self-injury has reached alarming proportions among our youth – studies show that 14-24% of adolescents and young adults have engaged in this behaviour at least once, with a quarter of these reporting current, chronic self-injury. This webinar will assist participants in understanding the experience and motivations of adolescents who intentionally injure themselves. Interested in watching the companion webinar?
