This session outlines prevalent types of self-harming behaviour and how these present in children and young people. Attendees will be provided with information on the common warning signs and causes of self-harm in children and young people. The session will help improve confidence in attendees to support children and young people by identifying causes, considering the effects of myths and stigma, along with how to have conversations about self-harming behaviours.

The trainer had a real depth of knowledge and openness about the topic and delivered the training in a very sensitive and knowledgeable way. They shared appropriate examples and were mindful of the effect it may have on attendees wellbeing. I really learnt a lot about the subject.
