Understanding self-harm can help reduce your anxiety if you are working with children and young people who may already be self-harming or at risk of developing self-harm as a coping mechanism. This webinar is designed to support adults who are impacted by children and young people who self-harm, by increasing your knowledge and ability to respond to what can be a frightening behaviour when first encountered.

These advances are also helping us to understand simple things we can put in place to build our own resilience and that of those around us. This webinar will cover some of the fascinating new evidence and unfolding theories for maintaining positive mental health.
