Deliberate non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is the intentional cause of harm to one's own body, very often to cope with intense emotional distress. Very often it achieves that aim, which is why it persists. It is more prevalent amongst young people, though by no means confined to them. Non-suicidal self-injury is not attempted suicide. People who self-harm do not intend to kill themselves, at that point in time. In attempted suicide, by contrast, the person intends to kill themselves. However, although it is important to distinguish between non-suicidal self-injury and attempted suicide, people who self-harm are in fact 10 times more likely to eventually end their own lives than people who don't. Sometimes, non-suicidal self-injury is triggered by events such as: bereavement, loss of employment, imprisonment, relationship problems, and other crises, yet at other times, none of those are present, and the non-suicidal self-injury seems to be purely an effective means of coping with tension and stress. NSSI is a presentation which is worrying and dis-empowering for many professionals, so this course sets out to give a clear and effective approach to working with non-suicidal self-injury by providing patients with something that works better for them than harming themselves. The APT has mastered the delivery of this training 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you. No longer do you have to wait for 'the start date' of the course. "Thank you, very comprehensive and really enjoyed the summaries and examples/activities." Training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. And the APT has perfected the art of delivering it in a way that makes it appear simple and easy to apply. "Really enjoyable and helpful." As the author of the approach and with a wealth of clinical experience, Dr William Davies presents the course with relevant stories and examples of using it, and an engaging lightness which perfectly complements the weight of the topic.   "The course provided me with valuable tools and skills that I can use effectively in my job." This course is APT-accredited, and gives you access to important resources for you to use post-course. Whether you simply want to broaden your knowledge or want to establish an NSSI service, this course is for you. It can be studied by teams or individuals, see below.

This online course is for managers and directors and focuses on how to manage in a way that generates good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, and doing so in a realistic way that works well for everybody. Many people spend more waking hours at work than they spend anywhere else, so it is imperative that we do our best to get matters right in the workplace. So this course spends only a little time on the mental health difficulties that can beset people, and focuses instead on what you as a manager or director can do to foster good mental health and wellbeing in a way that embeds it into your organisation. So we are not talking about mere ‘add-ons’, we are talking about your style and strategy, and operating a style and strategy that is good for your employees and colleagues and therefore is fundamentally good for your organisation in a realistic, practical, and measurable way.
