Self-injury can be a complex and frightening topic for those living and working with adolescents. This webinar will give parents and educators practical information on dispelling myths about and recognizing the signs of self-injurious behavior in young people and provide strategies on how to have conversations with teens that decrease stigma.

The session will be led by psychologist Dr. Ashley Warhol and will feature a young speaker from This Is My Brave, who will share her lived experience.

Our speaker, Ashley Warhol, Psy.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and the director of clinical services and internship training at Devereux Massachusetts & Rhode Island. Dr. Warhol specializes in treating youth with chronic mental health difficulties, specifically those who have experienced complex trauma and significant suicidal ideation and self-injurious behavior. Dr. Warhol provides training locally and nationally on best practices for working with LGBTQ youth, self-harm and risk management, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. In addition to her work at Devereux, Dr. Warhol teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at Becker College and Assumption University. Dr. Warhol also serves on the board of APA’s Division 53 Special Interest Group for Acute, Inpatient and Residential Services.

This webinar is part of Gateways’ ongoing speaker series on girls’ mental health and wellness, sponsored by The Miriam Fund of Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
