Self-harm can sometimes seem like the only release from distressing emotions, thoughts, or feelings. But it’s a self-destructive behaviour that will usually make people feel worse, not better. There are many ways to resist and ultimately overcome the urge to self-harm. If you’re a young person who self-harms and are seeking help, or if you know someone who does, and want to help, this course is useful. It can also provide support and advice for parents, caregivers, teachers, and anyone who works with young people.
This course explains the types of self-harming behaviour and will help you identify reasons why young people might self-harm. It will also show you a range of coping techniques and strategies to use to help overcome the urge to self-harm.
Distressing thoughts or feelings can overwhelm anyone. When this happens, it often seems difficult to know what to do or how to cope. Talking through our worries to people we trust generally helps us to manage painful emotions. Yet, this isn’t always easy or straightforward.
If you struggle to communicate how you feel, self-harm can seem like it’s the only way to express things which might be too hard or challenging to speak about. But you aren’t alone in feeling this way, and there is help available to stop this self-destructive behaviour.
Self-harm is a sensitive subject, but with a lot of young people experiencing the urge to self-harm, it’s a subject that needs to be spoken about plainly and honestly. And that’s what we aimed to do with this course. Using simple, colourful animations that are broken into small bite-sized chunks, this course is designed to give practical advice that can be remembered easily. It also uses a variety of navigation menus to help learners revisit information, and is accompanied by a printable workbook, which serves as a reminder whenever it’s needed.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
