PARENT WORKSHOP: Self-Harm & Eating Disorders

These slides were developed for a session for parents and carers at Pipers Corner Girls School in Buckinghamshire in November 2023.

Self-Harm & Eating Disorders: Who, What, Why and How to Help 

At a time when self-harm and eating disorders are increasingly prevalent but still widely misunderstood, this session offers clarity and practical guidance. Drawing on both her personal and professional experience, Pooky will delve into the “who”, “what” and “why” behind self-harm and eating disorders, building your understanding, dispelling misconceptions and working with you to foster a more empathetic and supportive environment for our children.

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire.  If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful.  If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
