Does Your Daughter Suffer From Self-Harm? Find Treatment at Clearview Girls Academy
Clearview Girls Academy knows how to treat your daughter as she suffers from Self-Harm Disorder, a condition in which she is purposely causing injury to herself, more than just in the form of Cutting, sometimes by head banging, punching, burning, drinking something hazardous, breaking her own bones or preventing her wounds from healing.
Self-Harm (also known as self-abuse, self-mutilation or self-injury) can be the way by which she expresses feelings she is unable to verbalize, divert herself from painful emotions, or gain control over, at least, her body if she feels she can’t control anything else in her life.
Many girls who suffer from Self-Harm report some type of childhood abuse (sexual or physical), and almost all sufferers indicate they were discouraged from expressing emotions. Self-Abuse is generally not seen as a cry for help, since girls more often than not do it secretly, and work to hide not only the behavior, but also the emotions leading to it. Your girl may feel alone or empty inside, terrified of intimate relationships. Self-harming behaviors can be a sign of a number of different psychiatric illnesses or personality disorders, so should be diagnosed by a professional.
Clearview Girls Academy – The Ideal Setting to Help Your Daughter with Self-Harm Disorder
Because Self-Injury may be linked to a variety of mental disorders (i.e.: depression, eating disorders, etc.) it is especially necessary to properly diagnose your daughter.
There is not one, single treatment approved for this disorder, but a variety of options, such as different types of psychotherapy. Treatment might include hospitalization or outpatient therapy (in order to facilitate her recognition of destructive thoughts and behaviors, teaching skills in developing outside relationships, etc.), mindfulness-based therapies (which help her to live in the present and more astutely interpret the actions of those around her) and, possibly, medication.
