Tina Rae, Elizabeth Smith

Aimed at professionals working with adolescents and designed to dispel and address the myths surrounding the complex problems relating to self-harm and suicide.

Self-harm and suicide are both sensitive issues and major challenges and this informative and comprehensive resource tackles these subjects in five effective steps:

  • Understanding self-harm and suicide
  • Proactive interventions
  • Staff training and facilitator support
  • Staff training: working with groups
  • The programme.

The 10-part student programme includes an audio diary to develop preventative strategies, recognise peer support and to access therapeutic agencies. Materials include a self-harm policy plan, information leaflets, PowerPoint presentations and facilitator notes. The PowerPoint presentation is presented on the CD Rom along with the activity pages from the 10-session programme.  Audio diaries appear on a separate CD.

A practical, sensitively constructed and timely resource which develops self-help skills and support systems to enhance the emotional well-being of troubled young people.
