SelfharmUK is bringing its 3-hour training programme to Aberdeen in November 2016 enabling smaller organisations and individuals to get involved where the in-house training may not be feasible. This training suits youth workers, teachers, those offering pastoral support in schools and anyone else who has professional involvement with young people.

The 3-hour training is our Essential Knowledge course. It is ideal for those who want to a basic understanding of self-harm as a relevant resource for their work with young people.

The training covers the following:

  • An overview of the latest research on the extent of self-harm among young people and the particular groups at highest risk
  • An understanding of why young people self-harm and key steps to help young people reduce their harming
  • How to respond to self-harm disclosure
  • Alternative coping strategies for individuals who self-harm

  • An understanding of physical, emotional and psychological indicators of self-harm

  • The impact of online communities and social media
  • Where to refer young people locally to specialist support for self-harm and an introduction to the resources that are available

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

The cost for the session is £40. All delegates receive a certificate upon completion of the course, training notes, signposting materials for young people and 10% discount off all SelfharmUK resources.

Training runs from 1-4pm
