Understanding Non-Suicidal Self-Injury: Perceptions of School Counselors
Simpson, Chris; Armstrong, Stephen A.; Couch, Lisa; Bore, Samuel K.
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n37 2010
This national exploratory study examined the perceptions of secondary school counselors' (n = 81) understanding of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). Two one-way ANOVAs revealed no statistically significant differences between middle and high school counselors on their perceptions of the prevalence of NSSI. Descriptive analyses revealed that a majority of participants lacked confidence in providing information about NSSI to school personnel. Recommendations for school counselors are provided.
