About this course

This course supports practitioners working with young people to increase their understanding of why young people self-harm, and how best to support those who do.

This workshop will run from 10am-1:30pm with a break.

 

Why take this course?

Self-harm affects thousands of young people in the UK and it can be hard to know how to respond to it in young people that you work with. This course will help you to consider helpful strategies for supporting young people who self-harm while also supporting your own wellbeing.
