Self-Injurious Behavior

Cornell Research Program on Self-Injurious Behavior

Do you have a child, a family member, a friend or at least know a teen or a young adolescent that engages in self-injurious behavior?

If yes, then you have come to the right website. This is because we provide all the necessary information that you need in order to help diagnose the behavior and at the same time determine the necessary steps that you have to undertake in order to help said youth.

This is actually very important because failure to detect this type of behavior may result in unintended consequences.

But what is really self-injurious behavior?

This type of behavior must be distinguished with behaviors associated with suicide. This type of behavior is usually defined as a coping mechanism to negative feelings. Oftentimes, the person exhibiting this behavior results to cutting oneself, ripping or pulling the hair, hitting oneself and the like. The goal can be several things like maintaining control, coping with feelings, protecting oneself, wounding oneself, among others. Oftentimes, the youth exhibiting the behavior stays in his or her room, in a corner or even inside a contemporary garage door in Prescott.  You’ll also want to use a service like Prescott garage door repair, and keep the garage door quiet as possible to reduce injuries.

Experts agree that this type of behavior is oftentimes classified as addictive. This may also happen in cycles and may take a period of time which can mean days, months or weeks.
