Event description
Please ignore the event date and time. A benefit of e-learning is that you are able to complete this training at any time or place from a computer with internet access. Child and adolescent psychiatrists have seen an alarming increase in cases of self-harm in young people – it has been estimated that about 1 in 10 young people will self-harm at some point. This insightful course covers the subject from a variety of angles.
Training objectives
The course is split into two modules: An Introduction, and How to Respond. You will learn the risk factors, the common reasons why somebody might self-harm, and how to respond to any young person who you suspect may be self-harming. The course also discusses how to approach the issue in schools and how healthcare professionals can feel better prepared to help the young people they come into contact with.
Learning outcomes
Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have a good working knowledge of:

  • How and why young people self-harm

  • The common risk factors and who is at risk

  • The common misconceptions about self-harm, and people’s attitudes towards it
