Why is training so important?

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.

Harmless’ training will encourage you to explore your awareness of self harm, and develop an understanding of the key issues faced by people who self harm, and by the issues that this raises for the services that these individuals come into contact with. We will explore the impact that we, as service providers, can potentially have upon the health, recovery and well-being of those that self harm, and explore skills and interventions that can be used with people that self harm.

Our aim is to help develop the knowledge, skills and awareness of staff to feel confident and competent in responding to individuals who harm themselves.

We deliver a range of workshop and training packages throughout the UK so that you can be sure you are accessing the appropriate level of support for yourself and your staff team.

All training is provided by an experienced trainer and in line with NICE Guidance (2004) combine research led, evidence based knowledge with service user informed insight to enhance the learning experience.
