Deliberate Self-Harm: an information session for parents, teachers and carers

Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters Jenny Furey
Description Jenny's presentation on deliberate self-harm is aimed at parents, teachers and carers.

Deliberate self harm is a complex and sometimes alarming issue for the parents, teachers and carers involved. It is often misunderstood and raises many questions such as:

-What is deliberate self harm?
-How common is it?
-Types of deliberate self harm
-Why children and adolescents self harm?
-Responding to deliberate self harm
-Alternatives to deliberate self harm

This presentation will demystify deliberate self harm by providing comprehensive information and the chance to ask questions.
About the presenter(s) Jenny Furey has been a registered psychologist since 1996 and is a member of the Australian Psychological Society. She worked in secondary school settings for many years and counselled adolescents (and their families) who presented with issues of deliberate self harm. Jenny currently works in private practice and has a particular interest in anxiety disorders in both adults and adolescents. She also works with victims of crime and survivors of child sexual abuse. Whilst Jenny uses the fundamental elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy in her practice, her preferred therapeutic model is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), taking a whole person approach to treatment.
