Course Description

This workshop will be an opportunity to become better informed and more confident in responding to incidents of deliberate self-harm and in responding to young people for whom eating has become problematic. What exactly do young people do? Why do they deliberately harm themselves? Why do they stop eating sometimes or start making themselves throw up? What’s going on in their lives? Is everyone different or are there common themes? What helps and what hinders? How should professionals think about these things and how should they respond?

This workshop will be theoretical as well as experiential and practical. We’ll think about our own experiences as well as the experiences of the young people with whom we’re working. We’ll practise and learn together. The day will be of particular interest to professionals working with young people in education, health, social services, counselling and other contexts.
