The OLLIE Foundation in association with StEPs is proud to bring FLASH – Families Learning About Self Harm, to St Albans.
Do you support a young person aged 11-17 who is self-harming?
FLASH Workshops are for parents, relatives and carers of young people who are exhibiting signs of self-harm (including, cutting,
branding, hair pulling, self-poisoning, ingestion of non-food items and risktaking behaviour).
What does the course cover?
FLASH Courses provide the opportunity to discuss the problem of self- harm with professionals and other parents and carers. In doing so, you will learn more about the issues involved and learn how to better manage concerns you may have at home.
- Exploring 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
- Ways to manage under stressful circumstances
- Coping strategies for parents and carers
FLASH runs for 10 weeks. Each session lasts 2 hours and includes a short refreshment break. Costs: 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 (subsidies available)
