5c. Managing disclosures of self-harm & suicide (5cSP-SH&S-IFA)


Description
This training has been co-produced with Mental Health UK. The subject of self-harm and suicide is sensitively introduced using definitions and helpful facts. The course goes on to explore the likelihood and impact of managing a disclosure of self-harm and takes the learner through a practical demonstration of how to use The Signpost & the BLAKE protocol to assist a customer who expresses thoughts or feelings of self-harm. On completion of the course, the trainee will be able to give a practical demonstration of how The Signpost and the BLAKE protocol could assist them through a conversation where the other party expresses thoughts of self-harm. They will also recognise the need to consider their own wellbeing as a result of having stressful and emotional conversations.
