Counseling from the Cutting Edge:
Treating Self-Injurious Behavior in Social Media
Online Live Webinar: Real-Time, Interactive Training
The overwhelming presence of youth engaging in self-injurious behavior can leave todays’ therapist feeling perplexed and inadequate. This workshop challenges the attendee to adapt a new understanding of the behavior through the lens of trauma. It explores how the developing brain of an adolescent has the potential to perceive the world, complicated by social media, as traumatic. Self-Injurious behavior can be a response to navigating the novel relationship with their prefrontal cortex and the pressure for social acceptance versus autonomy.
A trauma-informed approach to treating self-injury is explored with the introduction of the T.E.A. Model (which stands for Together/Transform, Educate/Empower Accept/Autonomy). When competing with day-long social media exposure, a fifty-minute session can seem insufficient. The T.E.A Model guides the therapist to optimize session time by helping clients make sense of their behavior, respond therapeutically, and create opportunities for change while decreasing the risk for future trauma experiences.
