Harmless once again deliver specialist self harm training. Book on to our next course: January 16th 2014.

Our trainer, Satveer, is once again delivering specialist training today on the topic of self harm and working with self harm. As most of you are aware, self harm can be an extremely complex and painful issue to face, for the individuals who self harm, and for those that they go to for help and support. As professionals, the interaction that you have with someone that self harms has the capacity to help or hinder that person’s recovery.  Professional training, development and support are essential to ensure that we have the appropriate knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to make a positive difference to the life of someone is self harming, and to ensure that we feel comfortable and confident in our roles.

Our next ‘Introduction to self harm and working with self harm’ training is on January 16th 2014. Book your place today! Places are going quickly.
