The importance of self harm training
Self harm can be an extremely complex and painful issue to face, for the individuals who self harm, and for those that they go to for help and support. Self harm is also identified as a risk factor for suicide and perceived by many professionals as a high risk, often stressful field to work in.
Our training will encourage you to explore your awareness of self harm, and develop an understanding of the key issues faced by people who self harm, and by the services that these individuals come into contact with.
We will explore the impact that we, as service providers, can potentially have upon the health, recovery and well-being of those that self harm, and promote skills that can be used in intervention.
Further to this, our training will help you to improve your capacity for managing risk and reducing the risk of people committing suicide by offering the right help.
Our aim is to help develop the skills and awareness of staff to feel confident and competent in responding to individuals who harm themselves and believe that this will directly influence recovery.

General self harm training packages
Our general training days provide an opportunity for individuals from a broad range of professional arenas to attend and get a detailed overview of self harm and working with self harm. Although there is some opportunity for delegates to explore the impact upon them in their own professional arenas, the training is non-specific to a particular field.
Places on the training are sold on an individual basis, but provide an opportunity for people to share experience across fields to develop their skills and understanding.
