About the Training

​Self-harm can be a challenging and difficult topic. New Zealand research suggests that the numbers of young people who self-harm are increasing.

Many youth workers have a lot of questions about it, such as, is this a suicide attempt, are they seeking attention, when do I need to pass the person on to someone else.

In this webinar we will cover...
What is self-harm and why young people do it?
When does someone need medical attention?
Why is self-harm considered a contagious behaviour?
We will look at common myths and misconceptions
Are they just “seeking attention?”
When does self-harm turn into suicide?
