Garry King: Caring for Young People who Self Harm (Online) - EVENING SESSION

Specialist topics

This workshop will assist caregivers to understand and support the young people in their care who self-harm.

This workshop will give participants knowledge of risk and protective factors for young people in relationship to self harm / self injury. It utilises the latest research to inform best practice strategies that can be implemented into your day-to-day work with young people. It will give insights into the reasons young people undertake this behaviour. It will also give specific practical strategies that participants will be able to utilise in their daily work with young people - firstly, in building protective factors for all young people and secondly, in working with young people that have commenced self harm\self injury. 

What carers will gain:

  • Understand differences and links between self harm / injury and suicidal behaviour.
  • Identifying those most at risk of self harm / injury.
  • Risk factors for self harm / injury behaviour.
  • Protective factors for self harm / injury behaviour. 
  • Strategies to address self harming / injury behaviour - short/long term.

Presented by: AGENDA 2001
