A practical, easy-to-use book to help caregivers who have loved ones that are dealing with self-injury. The book identifies the various types of injury, the 35 reasons for it, the tattoo & piercing debate, how to assess & react to it, the creative ways people self-harm, the media’s role in spreading awareness of cutting and possible glamourizing of it, 17 tips for caregivers incl. vital things NOT to do that could make things worse, treatment options, dealing with manipulation, and MORE!
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.
This is the companion workbook to the 7.5-hour audiobook of A Practitioner’s Guide to the Treatment of Self-injury: tips, techniques, activities, and debates that was written by Lori Vann, MA, LPCS. 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.
