Understanding Self-Harm: Why it happens, and what we and young people need when it does.

In this MyST training session we will be looking at the reasons why young people might self-harm, and how we can respond in ways which support our young people. We will also be thinking about the impact young people’s self-harm has for us as carers, and the ways we might be able to take care of ourselves when caring for young people who self-harm.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop a definition of self-harm and recognise how it can present in young people.
  • Understand the reasons young people may self-harm.
  • Learn and practice ways we can respond to and care for young people around their self-harm.
  • Reflect on the impact of young people’s self-harm on us and think about how we can look after ourselves and each other.
