This 2 day workshop is being held in Port Augusta from 23-24 March 2012 by SAFE in Oz.
The workshop aims to give participants an insight into the headspace of one who self-abuses in order to better understand their ‘real’ world and experiences; focussing specifically on their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Throughout the workshop participants are encouraged to employ strength based practice, in collaboration with their clients, as a means to discovering a myriad of healthier alternative behaviours to use in response to their inner trauma.
As self-abuse does not impact solely on the physical aspect of an individual’s life, the workshop links self-abuse to its impact on the, mind, spirit and social aspects of life and explores the related long term effects.
Also discussed will be the connection between self-abuse and suicide, BPD [Borderline Personality Disorder], mental illness, sexual assault, domestic violence and adolescence.
The presentation mode for the workshop is both interactive and activity based and includes ‘real’ case studies, PowerPoint presentation and DVD.
Each workshop participant is provided with a SAFE in Oz brochure, pen and presentation folder. The folder includes a workbook for each day which contains a copy of the PowerPoint presentation, activity pages and additional subject related reference material.
The activity sheets include strategies and tools for use with clients, while the reference material acts to enhance understanding and give insight into related topics.
