Self-Injury: A School-Wide Response to a Growing Problem

Adolescent self-injury is a phenomenon that has exploded in our schools in the last decade. With the topic gaining recognition in movies, television, and the internet, more and more students are exposed to and trying self-injury as an emotion-regulatory tool. To address this important issue, implementation of a comprehensive prevention and intervention program can enable all staff, administration, parents, and students to recognize and help those students who may need it. This thesis explores how to build a school-wide program that will effectively create a school climate that is ready to handle these crisis situations through the use of a comprehensive toolkit.
