Online Self-Harm workshops

Designed specifically in response to Covid-19, these 2 hour workshops offer an opportunity for continuing professional development in bite-sized chunks, in a format that is accessible for you and your team.

These groups are kept small (8 per group) to promote interaction and safety, and cost £40 per participant. We offer these workshops in-house, and can be adapted to fit your needs.

Current courses available include:

  • Workshop 1: Understanding Self-Harm
  • Workshop 2: Support skills for self-harm
  • Virtually listening – supporting people by phone, text, zoom and email
  • Self-Care during Covid 19

Want to book an in-house course, or find out about getting a place on our open programme online courses from September onwards?

Face-to-Face Self-Harm Training

Our face-to-face self-harm training courses are currently suspended due to Covid 19.

If you have an up-to-date risk assessment for training, and would like to book an in-house course, we are hoping to be available to deliver training from late autumn onwards. These are participative courses for groups of up to 16 in size, and we are happy to travel to you. They cost around £800 per day, plus travel expenses, and can usually be tailored to your needs.

Current courses available include:

  • Supporting people who self-harm
  • Supporting young people who self-harm
  • Understanding self-harm and learning disabilities
  • Building empathy and understanding with clients labelled ‘Borderline’
