Bute MIlls, 74 Bute Street, Luton, LU1 2EY

Essential Knowledge Course (plus 3 additional modules)

10–13% of young people are known to actively self-harm.

However, for many disclosure is made harder by the fear of misunderstanding and the myths and stigma that remain around this issue. As professionals we can often be unsure of how to respond in light of a self-harm disclosure, fearing we will do or say the wrong thing. This extended session is ideal for those who would like to develop an understanding of self-harm as well as the skills to confidently respond and support young people around this issue.

  • How to respond to self-harm disclosure.
  • Alternative coping strategies for individuals who self-harm.
  • An understanding of physical and emotional indicators of self-harm.
  • The impact of online communities and social media.
  • Where to refer young people to specialist support for self-harm and an introduction to the resources that are available.
  • Practical response and support session highlighting resource materials that can be used by practictioners
  • Creating self-harm policy for your organisation
  • Impact on families and professionals

The cost of the course is £80 and the session runs from 10-4.30pm
