Working with Nonsuicidal Self-Injurious Adolescents
Nelson, Mark D.; Piccin, Rian
Journal of School Counseling, v14 n14 2016
Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) has evolved into a serious issue for adolescents, and is encountered in school systems across the United States. The ability of school counselors and other professionals working in the school environment to understand and assist students who exhibit signs of NSSI is critically important. Research remains minimal on the subject and it is unclear whether or not schools across the country have proper protocols in place for working with students who exhibit signs of NSSI. School professionals should be familiar with NSSI, how to identify NSSI behaviors in students, and proper protocols for working with students who exhibit signs of NSSI.
