The Understanding Self-harm workshop provides opportunities to improve knowledge, awareness and understanding of self-harming behaviour. Participants consider how personal attitudes and experiences might affect their helping role with a person who self-harms. It aims to clarify what self-harm is, what leads people to engage in the behaviour and considers its relationship with suicide. The causes, reasons behind the behaviour, and functions are discussed. Positive approaches to engaging with and caring for someone who self-harms are presented. Active participation is encouraged.
