Drawing on a unique combination of providing support services, grassroots research and statutory organisation experience (including prisons, schools and social care provision) our training courses are a response to national strategic developments and are informed by those with lived-experience.

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.  This enables us to help training participants from all settings and disciplines develop their own good working practice within clinical guidelines. Our training is continually assessed through feedback and evolves in response to current research and training needs.

We offer a range of regular training workshops and all of our training courses are available in-house to single or multi-agencies and can delivered throughout the U.K. and Ireland. Training can be tailored to suit the requirements of your group.

To discuss your training needs please telephone 0117 927 9600 or email lisafoote@selfinjurysupport.org.uk
