Learning Objectives:

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Describe the difference between various types of self-harming behaviors and their functions for clients
  • Identify and assess lethality
  • Discuss how to tell the difference between self-harm thoughts that may lead to behaviors versus intrusive thoughts of self-harm in clients with harm-themed OCD
  • Explain factors to consider for treatment planning and case conceptualization for clients with self-harming behaviors
  • Describe self-harm coping skills and how to empower clients to use them

Workshop Description:

Let’s face it: self-harm can be one of the most difficult behaviors a therapist encounters in their work with clients. Is it a potential suicide attempt? Could it get worse and be accidentally lethal? Is it attention-seeking behavior? Is it Harm OCD? The lines are frequently unclear, and none of us want to miss signs of its seriousness or inadvertently reinforce problem behaviors.

With a focus on practical strategies, we'll provide you with tools and resources to refine your skills to effectively support individuals across all age groups who self-harm. Whether you've previously worked with clients who self-harm or want to enhance your understanding of this critical issue, this workshop is an invaluable opportunity to refine your skills.
