A Practitioner's Guide to the Treatment of Self-Injury Audiobook

This is the follow-up book to Lori Vann’s, A Caregiver’s Guide to Self-injury (2014). The boxed flash drive contains almost 8 hours of material that is based upon her professional experience of working with those who have a past or current history of NSSI (Non-Suicidal Self-injury) that started in 1999. While A Caregiver’s Guide was written for those who have loved ones who are hurting themselves or for practitioners who are just starting to work with self-harm, A Practitioner’s Guide is strictly geared for the mental health or medical professional who is treating this population. 

DISCLAIMER: This is not a book should NOT be used in lieu of therapy.

It is based upon her twenty years of research and experience working with those with a history of self-harm/self-injury. The workbook follows the audio, as much of it is the exact words that Lori is reading. There are spaces to write, fill in the blanks, and questions to contemplate.
