Self-Injury Train­ing for Men­tal Health Professionals

Men­tal Health Pro­fes­sion­als, join KYC’s Clin­i­cal Train­ing Com­mit­tee in a train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty about self-injury. Speak­er Ani­ta A. Madley, MS, LCPC, Direc­tor of Adult Ser­vices and Dialec­ti­cal Behav­ior Ther­a­py at the Cen­ter for Con­tex­tu­al Change, will present this top­ic at Ken­neth Young Cen­ter’s Elk Grove Office. This event is co-spon­sored by the Illi­nois Asso­ci­a­tion for Behav­ioral Health (IABH).

Embrac­ing the Com­plex­i­ty of Self-Injury and Mov­ing Towards Mastery

In this course, Ani­ta Man­d­ley, MS, LCPC will help clin­i­cians devel­op a deep­er under­stand­ing of the com­plex­i­ty of self-injury and pro­vide a frame­work for how men­tal health pro­fes­sion­als can guide clients to imple­ment strate­gies to improve reg­u­la­tion, safe­ty, and sta­bi­liza­tion. This course will explain how clin­i­cians can help clients learn new emo­tion­al man­age­ment pat­terns to trig­ger­ing events. Encour­ag­ing clients to expand aware­ness of their expe­ri­ence in the moment of a trig­ger­ing event can help lead to last­ing improve­ments in the client’s health and safety.
