It's thought that 1 in 10 young people will self-harm by the age of 16. When you meet that 1 in 10 will you know what to say? Would you know where to direct them for help? Would you know why it could be happening to them?

Selfharm.co.uk is taking its training programme on tour, enabling smaller organisations and individuals to get involved where the in-house training may not be feasible. This training would suit youth workers, teachers, counsellors and anyone else who has professional involvement with young people. The 6-hour programme will cover:

An understanding of the key steps to help young people reduce their harming

Questioning skills with young people who self-harm

Alternative coping strategies for young people who self-harm

Legal obligations and duties of those working with young people who self-harm

Understanding of physical, emotional and psychological indicators of self-harm

An opportunity to develop self-harm policy in line with organizational requirements

There are 25 places available at each event. Numbers are kept at this level to ensure all delegates have ample opportunity to feel involved in the variety of activities and discussions offered.
