Part of our Summer Sprints Microlearning series!

Live webinar Aug. 25, 2021
9 a.m. to noon EST

Examine a new (DSM-V) syndrome, called non-suicidal, self-injury disorder (NSSI), and understand the epidemiology, prevalence, role, and function, along with an explanation of the underlying root causes of self-harm. The facilitator will outline the central roles of social media, emotion dysregulation, and insecure attachment. NSSI has a complex and nuanced relationship to actual suicide attempts, along with borderline personality disorder (BPD), those relationships will be clarified.
