Code: NL_Self-Harm Self-Harm & Disordered Eating: Helping Young People Learn to Live with Feelings

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.

Cost:

£95 + VAT (Total £114)

Effective practise for every educationalist has a long term, measurable impact on learning and achievement.


This workshop will be an active and engaging session bespoke for TAs and HLTAs written and delivered by the inspirational Amjad Ali. You will receive input from him to support you to, reflect on your practice and learn from one another.


You will walk away with a range of Teaching and Learning ideas that you can use for any subject, classroom and phase.


If you are not sure this is for you.......ask yourself the question:


Why do you do It?  Would I want to be a pupil in my class?

'For Amjad, education is about ensuring wherever you come from, whatever your parents do or not do, does not impact on a students' potential of success. Whatever success means to that young person, it should be found and celebrated.'
