I find this video on YouTube by Dr. Pooky Knightsmith. It deals with an issue that is occurring at epidemic rates in Teenagers. The issue is cutting or also referred to self-harming. I have seen more and more teens in my private practice who are cutting. However, parents usually do not know what to to if they suspect or find out their teen is cutting.
This video gives parents some excellent tips about how to approach the issue. The most important part is it gives suggestions about how to approach the issue without creating shame in the Teenager. This is very important because most teens who cut feel ashamed and this prevents them from accepting help. So if you know someone who may be cutting please watch this video.
So Parents here are great tips about what to do if your teen is cutting or self-harming. These tips help you get your child help without making them feel shame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfRwez8ergg&sns=tw via @youtube
