Cutting and other forms of self harm are on the rise with teens as they self injure to help cope with their emotional distress, anxiety and depression. The topic of self harm is a difficult one. It’s so hard to think of our teens injuring themselves intentionally. Today we welcome Jennifer Leydecker back to our Voices of Compassion podcast to discuss non suicidal self injury (or NSSI) and what that looks like in adolescents. Jen is a licensed marriage and family therapist and clinical program manager at CHC and works with teens every day.
