Parenting a troubled child can be a very stressful experience. There is an overwhelming need to understand what is going on for your child, and most importantly, how to support them in the best ways possible. Whilst there are no ‘magic answers’, often knowing a little more about the difficulty your child is facing, and exploring different strategies to support them can be incredibly helpful.

Parent Seminar: How to help your child with self-harm
Self-harm comes in all shapes and sizes, and can start in the toddler years. For some children, it is a way of coping with their big feelings; and for others it is a way of communicating their needs. This seminar looks at the emotive topic of self-harm to help parents understand why their child may be hurting themselves. We explore and discuss how you can support your child with their self-harm, and what to do if you are concerned aout your child’s safety.
