Event description

Description

10–13% of young people are known to actively self-harm.

However, for many, disclosure is made harder by the fear of misunderstanding and the myths and stigma that remain around this issue. As professionals, we can often be unsure of how to respond in light of disclosure, fearing we will do or say the wrong thing. This one-day training course is ideal for those who would like to develop an understanding of adolescent mental health as well as the skills to confidently respond and support young people around the issue of self-harm and suicide. It is ideal for those who want to expand their knowledge as a relevant resource for their work with young people.

The training covers the following:

  • An overview of the latest research on the extent of self-harm among young people and the particular groups at highest risk

  • An understanding of why young people self-harm and key steps to help young people reduce their harming

  • Alternative coping strategies for individuals who self-harm

  • An understanding of physical and emotional indicators of self-harm & suicide

  • Exploration and understanding of invitations a person at risk of suicide may give

  • Learn clear and practical information on how to explore suicide and respond appropriately

  • Understand what life's like for the first generation of teenagers using technology as a primary means of socialising and communicating

  • Understand what resilience is and the theories underpinning it

  • Show how to lead constructive self-talk

  • Where to refer young people to specialist support and an introduction to the resources that are available

A excellent opportunity to enhance your CPD
