Self-Harm: A Practical Whole-School Approach
This training will help you increase your awareness of self-harm in schools and key issues faced by people who self harm.
It's almost impossible to say how many young people are self-harming. This is because very few teenagers tell anyone what's going on. It is thought, though, that around 13% of young people may try to hurt themselves on purpose at some point between the ages of 11 and 16, but the actual figure could be much higher.
Self-harm can be an extremely complex issue. Delivered by Educational Psychologists, this training will help you increase your awareness of self-harm in schools, develop an understanding of the key issues faced by people who self-harm, and improve your knowledge base so you feel confident and competent in responding to individuals who harm themselves.
