Self harm awareness training - Medway Public Health

Self-harm Essential Knowledge

Medway Public Health have commissioned Self Harm UK to deliver a series of workshops to Medway’s children and young people’s work force. This is a brief awareness session, suitable for anyone working with or in the field of children and young people and would like to gain a better understanding of self-harm.

10 to 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.

Who the course is for

The masterclass 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. 

Learning outcomes:  

  • An overview of the latest research on the extent of self-harm among young people
  • An understanding of why young people self-harm and key steps to reduce harming behaviour 
  • How to respond to self-harm disclosure
  • Alternative coping strategies for individuals who self-harm
  • Recognising physical and emotional indicators
  • The impact of online communities and social media

Delegates will  receive a training pack, delegate notes and a certificate upon completion of the course.
