Interpersonal problem-skills training and self-harm
Insufficient evidence – there either hasn’t been any research on this treatment option or there is a small amount of evidence with unclear conclusions.
Interpersonal problem-skill training generally aims to help you to understand the relationships between your approaches to difficult situations and the outcomes of those situations. Focusing on ‘interpersonal’ problems, those related to other people, your professional will help you to learn different ways to manage problems and when certain problem-solving skills would be the most helpful. This treatment aims to help with self-harm through improving your relationships with other people and reducing any distress that these relationships currently cause.
