Early Intervention and Prevention
NEW: Self-harm Workshops for Educators
Self-harm is a growing concern for Educators and all professionals working with adolescents. The Self-harm workshop aims to assist educators to better understand and respond to this often confronting and misunderstood behaviour.
This workshop provides teachers with assistance in identifying warning signs; useful strategies; appropriate reponses and referral procedures.
“Before the course I was confident speaking about self harm with teachers, but less so with parents. Now I am confident with parents also. Thanks !” Workshop pilot participant, 2014.
“ It was great to be educated in this topic and be provided with facts and statistics as well as practical strategies. This will make it much easier to personally and professionally deal with this issue when a student approaches a teacher.” Workshop pilot participant, 2014.
