This training will be held on Monday, May 15th, 2023 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM in Room 106 of the Maine State Library, 64 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333.
Non-suicidal self-injury is the direct, deliberate destruction of body tissue in the absence of suicidal intent. It has been on the rise over the past decade. Among youth and young adults, it is frequently an issue of concern in education, health, and behavioral health settings. Though usually not a suicidal act, there is significant connection between self-injury and suicide risk that must be understood and addressed.
This training will review demographics, risk factors, and warning signs of self-injury as well as recommendations for assessment, intervention and management of self-injury. Introduction to protocol development and implementation will be offered as well as resources to support professional staff to address assessment and ongoing treatment needs.
This training is recommended for nurses, behavioral health clinicians and other professional staff working in educational or healthcare settings.
