Understanding Self Harm: Nth County Dublin

Understanding Self Harm Logo

The workshop provides opportunities for improved knowledge, awareness and understanding of self-harm. Participants consider how personal attitudes and experiences might affect their helping role with a person who self-harms. It aims to clarify what self-harm is, what leads people to engage in the behaviour and considers its relationship with suicide. The causes, reasons behind the behaviour, and the functions are discussed.

Positive approaches to engaging with and caring for someone who self-harms are presented. Active participation is encouraged. Learning is stimulated by audio-visuals and working with others in small groups.

This workshop is free of charge although advance booking is required.
