Online Workshop

Self-harm and suicide are major issues amongst New Zealand young people. Recent studies suggest up to one third of teenagers have tried self-harm. It is an issue that needs to be taken extremely seriously. There are a lot of myths about both topics that prevent a lot of people from getting the help they need. This evidence based,  best practice workshop will empower you to help a young person who is self-harming.

The key learnings will be: 

  • What is self-harm and why young people do it?
  • Are they just “seeking attention?”
  • How trauma, anxiety and sensory processing issues can lead to a heightened stress response
  • Common myths and misconceptions will be addressed
  • The teenage brain and how to prevent copycat behaviour

Empower professionals to have the confidence to manage a young person in crisis.
