Deliberate non-suicidal self-injury is the intentional cause of harm to one’s own body. More often, however, it is thought of as the coping with intense emotional distress by inflicting injury to oneself. It is more prevalent amongst young people, though is by no means confined to them.
This course sets out to give a clear and effective approach to working with non-suicidal self-injury by providing young people with something that works better for them than harming themselves.
The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:
- To equip carers with an understanding of what self-harm is, the different types of self-harm, and its prevalence
- To provide an overview of the factors and triggers associated with self-harm
- To help staff develop an understanding of the range of functions self-harm can serve for young people
- To enable staff to learn helpful ways to respond to incidents of self-harm and support young people to work towards alternative coping strategies
This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
Upon booking this course, we will discuss the learning objectives and outcomes you wish to achieve based on the young people in your care.
