We have just had a days training on working with self-harm which was extremely well attended and it was nice to see some new faces along with the more familiar.

A large group obviously meant many stimulating discussions and sharing of experiences. We covered many diverse aspects of self harm including the phenomenological experience of both the client and the worker in response to this developed coping strategy and form of self expression.

We considered a number of approaches to self harm and intend to circulate a list of relevant agencies and contact numbers contributed by those present.

Thank you to those present who made it a rich and interesting day.
