About the workshop

It will be addressing self-harm generally and specifically in a young boy who is severely disabled. Using previous case studies to explore 'the language of self-harm', especially in circumstances where the client is unable to directly express thoughts and feelings. Discussion will seek to address how, as facilitators, we listen holistically and make sense of what is being communicated.

  • coping strategies (self-harming behaviour)
  • identifying signs and symptoms of self-harm within an individual who is unable to express feelings and thoughts
  • seeking help to support an individual who is unable to express feelings and thoughts
  • statutory and community support
  • developing supportive network
  • group discussion
