Self-Injurious Behavior: Characteristics and Innovative Treatment Strategies
Dykes, Michelle; Specian, Victoria; Nelson, Meredith; Gray, Neal
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n15 2006
Self-injurious behavior is the intentional harming of one's own body. Little attention has been given to SIB in the past, particularly in terms of innovative treatment approaches. Adolescents are at a particularly high-risk for developing this ineffectual coping mechanism. School counselors are in a unique position to aid in the identification of this potentially deadly behavior. The characteristics and etiology of self-injurious behavior are presented, and innovative treatment strategies are outlined.
