SEMH Conference: Self Injury & Risky Behaviours

A day of engaging speakers and workshops, giving delegates knowledge, skills and resources to support the children and young people they work with.

Outline

The Health & Wellbeing Service, in partnership with Northpoint Wellbeing and NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups Partnership, are delighted to offer delegates from our Leeds settings the opportunity to attend the second of three Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) conferences over the academic year at Leeds Civic Hall.

Self-injury is a very common behaviour in young people. Around one in 12 people self-harm, with 10% of 15-16 year olds self-harming. However, self-harm is often portrayed simply as cutting, rather than an umbrella of self-injurious and risky behaviours which can be more difficult to identify. These include disordered eating, harmful sexual behaviour, substance abuse and more. This conference covers these behaviours, but also the role of early intervention in finding alternative coping mechanisms in early childhood, meaning it is suitable for all settings working with children and young people.

Description

The conference is open to Primary & Secondary Schools, Children's Centres, SILCs, Youth Services and LCC staff working with Children and Young People. It offers a selection of workshops designed to give delegates practical advice and information as well as an engaging keynote speech from Dr Govind Oliver who will be discussing some of the strategies included in the child-friendly version of the Chimp Paradox, My Hidden Chimp. Spaces are limited on certain workshops, it is advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Outcomes

This conference will bring together a range of staff working with children and young people to share best practise, improve understanding and debunk myths around self-injury and risky behaviours, to instigate positive changes and work together to help the children and young people in our city. As these behaviours are increasingly being identified in primary schools, we encourage staff working with early years and primary-age children to attend as well as delegates working with secondary age young people.

The aim of the conference is to provide relevant and up to date information, advice and training on key SEMH themes in our city and how delegates can take away the knowledge and skills they will learn and apply them to their everyday practice.
