About the workshop
Monday 25 June 2018, 9.45am – 4.30pm
@ Oriel House Hotel, Ballincollig, Cork, Ireland.
Whilst there is a growing awareness of the prevalence of self-harm, it remains a challenging area for many who are trying to support those who use it as a survival strategy and/or means of expressing difficult feelings.
This workshop will provide a space for anyone who is involved in supporting people who self-harm to develop a greater understanding of the experience, their own reactions and ways of navigating challenging situations.
It is facilitated by someone with personal experience of self-harm, as well as the experience of working with young people and adults who self-harm in a variety of settings.

Full price: €100 (includes HSE, statutory and/or commercial agencies)
Reduced price: €70 (includes those who are self-funding and voluntary sector/charity organisations)
Concessions: €20 (this is a special rate for those unable to afford the reduced fee, intended for those who are self-funding and are unwaged, students and/or on a low wage. We ask that people only choose this if they cannot afford the €70 rate).
To keep fees as low as possible I am providing tea/coffee in breaks, but not lunch. There is a bar/bistro on site that will be open during lunchtime. You are also welcome to bring a packed lunch.
If you would like to attend, but cannot afford the fee you would qualify for – please get in touch. I’m keen that people don’t miss out because of a lack of resources … these are challenging times, after all.
