Hoffman, Rachel; Hinkle, Michelle Gimenez; Kress, Victoria White
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v18 n1 p24-30 2010
Family therapy can be an important component of a comprehensive treatment plan when counseling adolescents who engage in nonsuicidal self-injury. The authors provide a rationale for the use of letter writing as a therapeutic intervention when counseling families in which an adolescent engages in nonsuicidal self-injury. Descriptions of types of therapeutic letters are provided and illustrated in a case example.
