Compass Seminar on understanding and helping self-harm

Wednesday, September 12, 2018   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, workshop, injury prevention, harm, mental wellbeing, young people

Compass Seminars NZ.Compass Seminars is pleased to announce this seminar with Sydney-based Senior Clinical Psychologist Dr Angela Dixon.

Self-harm describes a wide range of behaviours in which young people deliberately inflict harm upon themselves, or invite harm to occur to them. Professionals working with young people frequently feel unprepared to work with self-harming behaviour.

This seminar will help participants to understand the experience and motivations of adolescents who intentionally injure themselves and will focus on practical strategies that can help on both individual and organisational levels. Participants will leave this seminar with increased insight regarding self-harm behaviour in youth and with increased skills, resources and confidence for supporting, helping and treating young people who self-harm.

Dates: Thursday 18th October 2018.
Time: 9am to 3pm. Morning tea and lunch provided.
Location: Commodore Hotel (449 Memorial Avenue).
Cost: $245 per person including GST.
