Featured Events
Apri 4, 10:00 AM

Understanding Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI)

This training event will award 2 contact hours for licensed social workers with the NYSED State Board for Social Work and 2 CASAC renewal credits.*OASAS approval pending*


In this training, participants will be provided with an overview of suicide in order to understand the complexity of this global public health problem. We will also discuss some basic best practice guidelines on how to help suicidal individuals, as well as how to effectively collaborate on safety plans. We will then explore in-depth the phenomenon of non-suicidal self-injury. We will look at what NSSI is, how it presents, as well as how it intersects with suicide, how to assess risk, and when and how to intervene. Two case studies will be used to reinforce the concepts presented.
