A range of training days for professionals and others interested in the issue of self-injury
* All of our training courses are available 'in-house', delivered nationally
Through our work we have developed a deep understanding of the reasons individuals harm themselves and of the things they need to help them overcome their self-injury. We have wide experience of the concerns and needs of workers in different settings and disciplines, and in developing good working practice.
Our training is designed to meet the needs of those working in different settings, such as: social workers, medical staff, child and adolescent mental health teams, counsellors, youth workers, prison staff, housing support workers.
Training is participatory and course members are encouraged to discuss issues in groups, using relevant case studies and exercises.

"Participants of the course have overwhelmingly rated the training very highly with comments including: 'very knowledgeable and inspiring trainers' and 'the course really got me thinking about how to work differently' ... We would recommend the day to anyone." Sue Wood, Head of Learning & Development, Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust
