Self-harm and eating disorders are a few of the ways that people try to deal with emotional pain and/or pressure. The typical ages are 12-24, but self-harm is not uncommon at any age. This class is especially designed to help you understand what self-harm is, why people use self-harm, and addresses some of the myths as well as prepares you to know how to respond.
Because of the prevalence of self-harm in our society, everyone is encouraged and welcome to attend. Youth leaders and workers are strongly encouraged to take this class. You will receive lecture notes and helpful handouts.
