Walk into any secondary school and you can be confident that there are young people who self-harm. Research suggests that around 1 in 10 young people will self-harm at least once. That equates to 2-3 students per classroom.
KIP Education’s self-harm & self-injury workshops help young people to reflect on their relationship with themselves; understanding self-care and healthy coping mechanisms, helping schools and youth organisations to proactively ensure the safety of their young people.
Through discussion, role-play, analysing examples, watching videos and completing activities, young people will learn about resilience, mindfulness and communication. They will explore how the image they have of themselves often misrepresents reality and learn where to find support.
Understanding and exploring emotional well being and resilience
Awareness of the negative influences that put an individual at greater risk of eating disorders and other types of self-harm / self-injury (i.e. cutting)
Extend understanding of the dynamics underlying self-injury.
Explore alternative coping strategies.
Develop insight into personal relationships with self-injury.
“KIP Education engaged fantastically with our young people, offering them lots of solutions which were welcomed as were the discussion points.
Thorough in research and preparation, the content was really well adapted for the school’s/year group’s needs.”
