Summary or Abstract : The acts of cutting, hitting, biting or burning one's own body have become increasingly prevalent amongst adolescents. These behaviours have been termed self-injury but are also known as deliberate self-harm, self-abuse or self-mutilation. The onset of self-injuring behaviours often coincides with early adolescence, placing middle school educators in a prime position to prevent or intervene in the employment of them. Unfortunately there is little research to support those educators when they are faced with the challenge of responding to a student who is, or may be, self-injuring leaving both them and their students at a disadvantage. Driven by the main question, "What experiences have educators had with urban middle school students who self-injure?" this inquiry has begun to address this omission. Through semi-structured interviews and document analysis, the experiences of six educators who worked in Canadian middle schools with students who self-injured were explored. Research findings were coded thematically and then juxtaposed with the current literature on self-injury and with documents pertaining to the legal obligations and ethical guidelines for educators. In highlighting areas of resonance and dissonance four areas of interest emerged: (i) the in-depth understanding of self-injury the participants held, (ii) the evolving nature of self-injury in schools, which included flaunting the behaviours, group engagement and a contagion effect, (iii) intervention strategies both undertaken and proposed by participants along with perceived obligations, and (iv) potential approaches to prevention. Implications for future research and practice were also suggested throughout this process. The overall findings of this study suggest that self-injury has become a pervasive behaviour educators are required to contend with in middle schools, which requires further investigation..
