FREE ACCESS TO WEBINAR ON 23rd AUGUST 2012 FROM 7pm to 9pm
Every year 170,000 people attend Accident and Emergency Departments across the UK due to self-inflicted injuries.
Self-harm and Suicide are linked in much of the available literature. In many cases both phenomena present together. However, there is a section of people who self-harm who have never presented suicidal behaviour. In this course we explore those links in an attempt to understand them better.
In this workshop we refer to self-harm in the wider spectrum as a coping mechanism.
This training has been developed utilising professional experience gathered from the delivery and management of services for people who self-harm. In addition, people who self-harm has had an input in the preparation of the materials and are an integral part in the delivery of the training. Furthermore, we strive to keep up with current research and practice based evidence, including NICE Guidelines Self-harm: Longer Term Management (2011)
Some of the topics addressed in this workshop are
Attitudes, Safe Self-harm, Harm Minimisation, Current Guidelines, Vicarious Trauma, Physiology, Crisis Intervention, Risk Assessments, Difference between Self-harm and Self-Injury among other.
This course is divided in two sections:
- A webinar lasting two hours where Maria Naranjo and Lora Coyle will do a presentation that includes a participative round of Q’s and A’s
- A 350 words assessment submitted online.
When participants take part in the Webinar and do the assessment they gain a British Psychological Society Certificate of Continuous Professional Development equivalent to six hours CPD. This course costs £55 including V.A.T
Participants can opt to do only the Webinar and gain a CPD Certificate for two hours from Online Event (on completion of an online assessment). This modality costs £25 including V.A.T.
