Nonsuicidal Self-Injury in Teens 
Teri Hourihan, LPC, NCC

This presentation will address the nature of nonsuicidal self-injury in teens, detailing how self-harm is separate from suicide. Teri will present material based on new research explaining how the teen's underdeveloped brain contributes to self-injury. She will also detail specific ways providers can lower the risk of self-harm in teens by educating on coping skills providers can teach their clients. Teri will also define self-harm and explain why it is a difficult topic to study. Further, several theories on why self-harm is used by teens will be summarized.
