Description

Two-day workshop 13:00-17:00 each day Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th August 2017

Are you supporting someone who is in crisis? Are they using self-injury, drugs/alcohol, risky behaviours to cope?

People who are in mental health crisis have generally experienced various degrees of trauma. People use self-defeating behaviours such as eating disorders, alcohol/drug abuse and self-harm in order to cope with the effects of trauma, abuse and loss. In this workshop you will learn why and what you can do to help.

Self-defeating behaviours are those that we engage with despite knowing that they will make us fail, harm, or bring trouble.

You will learn how to approach the topics involved and where to seek help.

You will develop skills and tools to support clients to learn self-management strategies through their recovery.

OBJECTIVES

  • Increase understanding of what is like to be in a mental health crisis position and how it affects people;
  • Incorporate a more trauma informed and strengths based approach to your practice;
  • If you are affected learn why you have developed these unhelpful coping strategies and how to develop healthier ones;
  • Develop skills and tools to support clients to learn self-management strategies to support their recovery;
  • Support and help: Where to go for help, advice and/or support.
