Event description
ADAVIC and Jenny Furey present a halfday workshop for teachers, clinicians and case workers on Deliberate Self-harm in Young People.

About this Event

Overview

There has been an increase in deliberate self-harm in the last two decades. Self-harm is a complex and often alarming issue for the parents and carers of the young person.

It is often misunderstood and raises many questions. While professionals support the young person involved they often also need to support their families and friends.

This presentation will demystify deliberate self-harm by providing an overview of the following areas:

  • Definition of deliberate self-harm
  • Latest research on deliberate self-harm
  • How common is it?
  • Types of deliberate self-harm
  • The differences between suicide and self-harming behaviours
  • Why do young people self-harm?
  • Common risk factors
  • The psychological and physical signs of self-harming behavior
  • How to respond to deliberate self-harm
  • Alternatives to self-harm
  • What if the young person doesn’t want to stop self-harming?
  • When the young person doesn’t feel like self-harming

Target Audience

Teachers, clinicians, and case workers.

Please note:
