WORKSHOP: Self-Harm

These slides were developed for East Sussex Council’s annual safeguarding conference.

Here’s the session overview:

Breaking the Cycle of Self-Harm

Self-harm is increasingly prevalent, yet many colleagues report not really understanding it and worrying they’ll make things worse if they try to support a student. During this keynote, Pooky will answer the many questions you have about the ‘What’, the ‘Why’ and the ‘What next’ of self- harm, whether you’re looking to lead an organisation-wide approach or you have an individual in mind you want to make a difference to.

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.
