Description

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
