It is estimated that 1 in 10 young people will self-harm in any one year in the UK. With this statistic it is paramount that we have a better understanding as professionals as to what self-harm is, the functions of the behaviour and how best to support someone. Self-harm is often misunderstood or there is the perpetual fear from the professional of saying/doing the wrong thing and making the self-harm worse.
This professional learning is designed to increase colleagues’ confidence, understanding and knowledge by reducing fear and tackling the myths of self-harm.
The day will be led by Satveer Nijjar. Satveer has facilitated sessions for numerous independent schools and the BSA. Feedback is regularly rated ‘excellent’. Further information about Satveer and her work can be found via her website - http://satveernijjar.com/
This will be an interactive day and will include the following:
- Why people turn to self-harm – triggers and functions.
- The role of the internet/social media.
- Myths & language use.
- Self-harm and suicide – similarities and differences.
- How to support someone who self-harms.
Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 17 November the latest.
