This webinar is being offered for: school case managers, directors of special services, principals, parents and anyone in the community interested in learning more about this topic.One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) will be offered to school officials and all attendees will be able to download a certificate of completion.

"We know that many professionals and parents are concerned about the problem of self-injury and will benefit from the information in this webinar.
