One of the keys to understanding self-harm behaviour is to recognise and relate it to ourselves. We can deliver a half or full-day workshop on Working with Self-Harm in Counselling which combines reflection on our professional responses with practical techniques for working with clients who self-harm. The workshop will be delivered by one of SAFA's experienced counsellors and will involve video, experiential exercises, discussion of case studies and questions and answers.
- To explore the reasons, methods and feelings that are involved in self-harm and look at our own responses
- Asking questions and reviewing risk
- Ways of working with clients who self-harm in a counselling setting
- Professional and ethical considerations
