In this seminar, Dr. Tony Sheppard answers these
questions and more as he guides you through a multisystemic approach to
assessment and treatment of non-suicidal self-injury. This course focuses not
only on risk assessment, but also provides a practical guide to working
effectively with clients — covering simple assessment and management of
self-injury as well as more significant care, such as residential treatment and
management of multiple self-harm behaviors. Several interventions will be
examined in-depth, including motivational interviewing; cognitive treatment;
replacement skills; and adjunctive family, group, and psychiatric therapies.
Throughout the course, we will investigate the underlying motivations behind
self-harm behaviors, identifying complications related to trauma and/or body
image issues. By the end of the day, you will feel confident in your ability to
match interventions to individual clients (stepping up or increasing treatment
as necessary), while preventing and responding to potential treatment pitfalls
and legal/ethical issues.
