Understanding and Working with Self-harm and Attempted Suicide – 25 March

The Centre for Professional Practice will host a presentation on Understanding and Working with Self-harm and Attempted Suicide at Canterbury campus on Monday 25 March from 9.30-11.30.

The presentation, by Dr Terence Nice, Programme Director (Psychotherapy), at the Centre for Professional Practice, focuses on the assessment and treatment of people who self-harm and attempt suicide.

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. The presentation will be followed by Q&A time. Refreshments will be provided and certificates of attendance will be issued.

Venue: University of Kent Canterbury campus, Grimond Lecture Theatre 2, Canterbury CT2 7NZ.

Fee: The event has a charge of £20.

All spaces must be pre-booked online.
