Cutting Down: A CBT approach for the assessment and treatment of young people who self-harm
This two-day workshop will focus on the practical application of cognitive-behavioural techniques for self-harm and maintaining factors. The workshop will be very participative, involve a summary of the relevant literature and a manual based approach to working with this client group. Manualised content covered will also include sessions with parents/carers and include some third wave CBT techniques, to offer a flexible formulation driven treatment for individual clients. Participants will have an opportunity to learn and practice all the module skills and go away with a practical and accessible approach to working with clients who self-harm. This training is suitable for CAMHS staff and other therapists/clinicians working with young people who self-harm. The presenters will assume that professionals attending will have a basic understanding of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
