The language of self-harm
This event is a workshop suitable for therapist and client.
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.
