Workshop on understanding and treating self-harm

Wednesday, April 18, 2018   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, workshop, mental health, young people, injury prevention, harm

Self-injury (also known as self-harm) has grown in the past decade from an obscure psychiatric symptom to a mainstream problem. Clinicians, educators, medical and criminal justice professionals frequently feel unprepared to work with teens and adults who engage in self-directed violence.

This workshop is designed for anyone working with young people including school leaders, school counsellors, concerned teachers, social workers, youth workers and clinicians, medical and criminal justice professionals, and concerned individuals.

Date: Thursday 28th June 2018.
Time: 9am to 3.30pm.
Location: Christchurch - venue to be confirmed.
Cost: $165 plus GST per person.

Find out more about this self-injury workshop, including how to register. You can also contact Faye Johnson if you have any issues (06 878 3456 or faye[at]

Internationally recognized expert Dr Wendy Lader brings more than 30 years practical experience working with self-injurers as well as a unique mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge to this subject area.

This workshop will enable attendees to:

  • Explain the three meanings and the functions of the self-injurious act.
  • Clarify the differences between self-harming and suicidal behaviours.
  • Describe possible cultural, familial, and biological underpinnings of self-injury.
  • Describe four Goals of Treatment.
  • Utilise the impulse control and other logs to help self-injurers differentiate thoughts, feelings, and behaviours; and
  • Be more confident in working with self-injurers.
