 What is Understanding and Working with Self Injury?

It is a half-day educational and awareness raising workshop, with an emphasis on experiential learning and participation.

Who is it for?
Anyone involved in supporting someone who self injures: including health professionals, support workers, housing staff, teachers, youth workers and volunteers.

What are the training goals?
The session combines various teaching methods including discussion, an experiential exercise, small group and pair work and whole group discussion. Each participant receives a resource pack with further learning materials and information about sources of support. The workshop is facilitated to encourage a safe and effective learning environment.
Areas addressed in the workshop include:

  • Attitudes and preconceptions toward self-injury
  • The dynamics, meaning and functions of self-injury
  • Causes and triggers
  • Cycles of harm
  • Helpful and unhelpful responses to people who self-injure
  • Alternative coping strategies
  • Organisational and clinical responses to self injury


Getting to the Venue

 Located in the centre of town, the venue is easily accessible by public transport.

If travelling by bus please use the North Street stops and take the short walk down Ship Street.

If arriving by train, the Friends Meeting House is a 10 minute walk from Brighton Railway Station.

The nearest car park is in Churchill Square Shopping Centre, Regency Road, Brighton BN1 2RT.

 Disabled Parking: There are two designated Blue Badge parking bays in Ship Street which are about 50m from the entrance to our grounds.

1. Paying Places

Cancellation with more than 4 weeks’ notice – 10% charge
Cancellation with 1-4 weeks’ notice – 50% charge
Less than 1 week’s notice – no refund

2. PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council Funded Places

If you have been allocated a PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for half-day courses) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders it will be more difficult to secure future funding for these courses.

 Whole Courses

Whole Courses can be a cost-effective way of training your team in your own venue. If your organisation is based in Brighton & Hove and works with at risk target groups we may be able to offer a discount based on the allocation of funded places. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs, and possible discounts and funding options.
