Self-injurious behavior is a manifestation of maladaptive coping.

  • Discuss some biological, social, and psychological causes that may explain why young people engage in self-injurious behaviors.
  • Choose one self-injurious behavior that you would like to learn more about.
  • Discuss what the research says about the etiology or the causative factors for this behavior.
  • What evidence-based treatment modalities have been recognized as helpful in managing these behaviors?


Reply to at least two of your classmates. In your reply posts, discuss the treatment modalities in your peers’ post in relation to the treatment modality that you identified in your initial post. Are they similar or different? Reflect on whether or not stigma affects healthcare professionals’ attitudes toward treatment for this type of self-injurious behavior.

Pick out an idea from your peers’ initial post that you find most interesting and tell how you will use this information in practice.
