It is crucial counselors receive accurate information and adequate training to protect their professional identity and welfare of clients. 42% to 64% of clients present with self-injurious behaviors. Ten counselor interns were interviewed in a generic qualitative inquiry, sharing experiences and insight into perceived preparation by their master’s program for working with this specialized population. Results of this study and implications for counseling programs are presented.
