Please join us for the first in a series of four clinical research updates that will occur during the coming year. Not only will we be exposed to state-of- the-art information relevant to clinical practice, but afterwards we can relax and discuss it with the presenter.

Cost: $15.00.

This program reflects a medium level of difficulty for psychologists.

Participants will be able to:
1. Describe the ways in which non-suicidal self-injury is a concern separate from suicidal self-injury;

2. List the prevalence, clinical presentations, functions, and comorbidities of non-suicidal self-injury;

3. Identify at least two instruments to assess severity of non-suicidal self-injury, and

4. Outline evidence-based treatment strategies for non-suicidal self-injury.

Jason Jared Washburn, Ph.D., has been a faculty member at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine since 2005. He also serves as the Director of the Center for Evidence-Based Practice at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital. Dr. Washburn has an article in press on this topic in Psychological Assessment.
