Self Harm: an information session for parents, teachers and carers. A public information session with Jenny Furey, Psychologist.

Jenny’s presentation on deliberate self-harm is aimed at parents, teachers and carers.
Deliberate self-harm is a complex and sometimes alarming issue for the parents, teachers and carers involved. It is often misunderstood and raises many questions such as:
- What is deliberate self-harm?
- How common is it?
- Types of deliberate self-harm?
- Why children and adolescents self-harm?
- Responding to deliberate self-harm
- Alternatives to deliberate self-harm

This presentation will de-mystify deliberate self-harm by providing comprehensive information and the chance to ask questions.
