Course Aim

Teaching is founded upon evidence based practice and theoretical understanding, however this is married together with practical examples of service provision and service user experiences, giving the learning outcomes depth and realism.  

From within this unique environment participants will explore the various types and functions of self-harm, explore core emotional/developmental deficits for those that self-harm and learn how to generate appropriate alternative coping strategies that assist with change. Participants will also explore the harm reduction approach to self-destructive behaviours alongside identifying and managing high risk clients in collaboration with other agencies.
