Go Back


This uplifting course demystifies this apparently wilfully destructive behaviour and its causes and shows why we shouldn’t give up on people who self-harm— even in the most apparently hopeless situations.

You will leave armed with practical skills, new insights and a clear research-based framework that will help you reduce and stop self-harming behaviours and give sufferers the best chance of moving on in their lives...

  • How to tell the difference between self-harming and a suicide attempt
  • An opportunity to learn and practise some of the key skills you need when working with people who self-harm
  • A cohesive and effective treatment strategy
