Self-harm or non-suicidal self-injury is not an illness in an of itself but rather a symptom of an illness. While it can be treated in the context of many illnesses, it is important to determine the cause of the behavior to determine the most effective treatment model. This can be done with your therapist and will continue to be discussed throughout your treatment.
DBT is the evidence-based treatment for non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and the most common treatment, however it is not always the most appropriate depending on the case. The treatment staff at The Counseling and Wellness Group is comfortable managing NSSI in a variety of treatment models.
