There is a whole list of reasons that a child or young person might begin self-harming, but once they do it can be difficult to stop. This course will show learners how to identify the signs and symptoms of self-harm and understand the causes of self-harm, helping them stop the behaviour early. The course will also examine how to work therapeutically with self-harm, including identifying risk, accurate documentation, and information sharing.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To understand different self-harm methods and identify the signs and symptoms
  2. To know how to risk assess your looked after child, your home environment, and individual situations
  3. To understand the importance of reporting and documenting accurately
  4. To understand the importance of therapeutic interventions, and continuing this within the home setting, providing education, support, understanding, and unconditional love
  5. To understand that self-harm is a coping mechanism and needs to be replaced with a positive coping mechanism, using distraction techniques, and using therapy boxes within the home

This course provides professionals who work with children and young people the means to advance their knowledge of therapeutic care.

Upon booking this course, we will discuss the learning objectives and outcomes you wish to achieve based on the young people in your care.
