Event description

Description

A three-hour interactive workshop, Understanding Self-harm is designed for anyone who is wishing to broaden their knowledge of self-harming or who is involved with someone who self-harms and wishes to offer them support.

Self-harming can be a secretive behaviour that sometimes has fatal consequences, with a proven link between self-harming and suicide in some cases. This course touches briefly on these statistics and encourages participants not be afraid to have the conversation about what is ‘going on’ with their family member, friend, student or employee.

Understanding Self-harm delivers an interactive experience in a safe environment, increasing understanding of:

  • What self-harming is

  • Who does it

  • Why they do it

  • The methods that some people use

  • The warning signs

  • The potential physical, psychological and behavioural effects

  • The myths

  • Your role in supporting someone who self-harms

  • Support services

  • First Aid for Self-harming

The student pack includes information on starting difficult conversations and support services aimed at young people and adults. Understanding Self-harm does not promote self-harming and encourages alternative healthier coping methods, however in recognising that it does happen the course also includes guidance on First Aid for Self-harm.

After taking part in the training previous delegates have said: "I've now gained the confidence to ask all of the relevant and suitable questions and how to respond. I also learned that self-harm is not just cutting and done by females."

"I learned how to approach the subject of self-harm and the different interventions available."

"I gained further knowledge and confidence for what I do on a day to day basis at work."
