Nonsuicidal Self-injury Workshop
Dr Madeline Wishart - Master of Applied Psychology
St Vincent's Hospital - Room 3
Early-bird: $185 (incl GST)
This full day workshop will focus on practical information and skills to manage nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) that can be assimilated directly back into your practice. Beginning with differentiating NSSI from suicide, and operationally defining the behaviour, Madeline will present the results of her recent PhD research to provide a comprehensive profile of this NSSI. This workshop will also aid in the identification of young people who may be at greater risk of self-injuring. Madeline will also concentrate on harm minimisation and strategies that can be employed to help decrease self-injurious behaviours. The session will end with ways to minimise the potential spread of NSSI within your clients.
