Do you work with people who self-injure and struggle to know what to do or how to help them?

This course focusing on repetitive cutting (self-injury) is intended for any staff in any setting.  You don’t need to be a mental health professional, but you can be.

The interactive online resource (workbook) can be used as guided self-help or as an addition to counselling, psychotherapy, or other helping relationships.

There is a new short course and online learning resource at UCLan provided by Dr Gillian Rayner Reader/Associate Professor in Counselling & Psychotherapy to help you.

This course will be provided four times in the next year, two in person and two online. (See the dates below)

You can attend the course on its own or purchase the course, use of the online resource with as many people as you like and six sessions of online supervision.

Gill has over 30 years clinical and educational experience as a nurse and psychotherapist, working with people who self-harm/self-injure and providing training and supervising staff from many different backgrounds in health, social care, forensic settings, housing and education.

She has also published and researched widely in this area and is passionate about having clear interventions that most people can use to help.
