Understanding and Working with Self-harm and Attempted Suicide
A Presentation by Dr Terence Nice, Programme Director (Psychotherapy), the Centre for Professional Practice

The presentation looks at the prevalence of self-harm,   national guidelines, causative factors and ways of ameliorating suicidal ideations and diminishing acts of self-harm.  The territory of self-harm and attempted suicide is often paradoxical and labyrinthine, leaving clinicians, practitioners and workers uncertain about how to react positively and respond appropriately. The presentation is aimed at all those people who come into contact with young or older people who self-harm or attempt suicide.  The presenter is a Lecturer in Psychological Therapies, Highly Specialist Psychotherapist and an active researcher in this field. Dr Nice has also developed a self-harm tool-kit to assist in the assessment and treatment of this group.
