The course is aimed at all staff working with people who do, or may, self-harm. It reflects the standards of practice set by NISCC in relation to ‘Respecting the rights of service users while seeking to ensure that their behaviour does not harm themselves or other people. and supports RQIA Provider Guidance 2017-18 for Domiciliary Care Agencies, Is Care Effective?

Trainer: Louise Hughes

The right care, at the right time in the right place with the best outcome.

The course is highly interactive and asks that learners bring their own professional experiences to the day and learners are encouraged to prepare some work in advance of the course, conducting a short service audit and analysing how they currently communicate with service users who self-harm.

By the end of the course the learners will:

  • understand what is self-harm
  • understand types of self-harm/self-injury
  • explore reasons for self-harm
  • explore responses to self-harm
  • explore communication with people who self-harm
  • explore identification and prevention
  • explore self-management.
