Allambi Care & TACT Training are excited to be hosting Dr. Janis Whitlock from New York’s Cornell University. Dr Whitlock will be presenting a workshop specifically tailored for those working in the sector with children and young people that engage in non-suicidal self-injurious behaviour.
This workshop is designed to help participants understand what self-injury is, why people do it, when and how it stops, and how someone can meaningfully support the recovery process. It also covers the basis of therapy, communication skills, managing common issues, such as power struggles, and how to foster a healthy environment for everyone during this time.
