Self-Injury and Young People: Untangling the myths and weaving helpful responses -  Kay Inckle

This article by Dr Kay Inckle looks at Self-Injury and Young People and untangles the myths and offers helpful resources to respond. The following scenario and discussion sets out some of the key issues for counsellors and therapists working with young people who self-injure. The characters portrayed in the scenario are composites1. Composite characters are drawn from the experiences of a number of individuals such that real-life issues and dilemmas can be portrayed without compromising the confidentiality or anonymity of any one person (see Inckle, 2010).
