Parents in St Albans are being offered training in self-harm management.
Flash (Families Learning About Self Harm) workshops are being offered through The OLLIE Foundation at a subsidised rate for parents.
The course runs for 10 weeks and will be helpful for parents of 11-17 year olds who want to be informed on issues relating to self-harm.
Courses provide the opportunity to discuss the rising problem of self-harm with professionals and other parents and carers.
This course will normally cost £200 per person, but The OLLIE Foundation has subsidised the first course so delegates will only pay £7.50 per session or £75 for the whole course. The course will explore what self-harm is and what the risks are; listening and self-esteem enabling skills; managing self-harm within the family environment; how self-harm impacts on parenting, and coping strategies for parents and carers.
