Are You Struggling With Self Harming?
Available Treatment Options
Counseling interventions for self-harm include cognitive and behavioral interventions and discovering or processing past trauma. Sometimes, if a person understands the causes of their emotional pain, it can reduce the behavior.
Behavioral interventions include replacing the harmful behavior with healthier ones, like snapping a rubber band on the wrist when someone has the urge to self-harm.
Cognitive interventions include examining thought processes that a person has when they feel the urge to self-harm.
Family therapy, group therapy, or inpatient rehabilitation can also be helpful for self-harm.
