Understanding and Responding to Self Harm in Young People

Self harm in young people

The Understanding and Responding to Self Harm workshop is designed for those who young people often approach when they have purposefully harmed themselves.

The workshop is also useful for those working to support a young person who has a history of self harm or anyone who may need to have a conversation with a young person they suspect is purposefully harming themself.

Teachers, welfare workers, direct care workers, social workers, nurses or psychologists may find this workshop provides them with ways of approaching the topic of self harm with the young people they support.
