Talking and writing about self-harm

Posted: April 23, 2015 in Uncategorized

Really enjoyed giving an online seminar for WithScotland this week. The slides from the talk can be accessed here: talking and writing about self-harm 21-04-15.

I’m writing up some of the findings on ‘attention-seeking’ – an ever contentious topic – for publication.

I will also be talking next week at an NHS Self-Harm Awareness event being held in East Dunbartonshire next week; sharing a programme with the On Edge folk again (they joined the launch event for the SASH Research Project).

On Edge is a really comprehensive pack for teachers with lesson plans and material to help support teachers to address self-harm in a series of dedicated classes. Given that young people in the SASH Research Project often highlighted how little self-harm was talked about in schools, this is a very positive development.
