This course aims to provide a safe space in which students can think about and discuss the different reasons that a person might engage in self harming behaviour – focusing on why, not how. We look at statistics regarding the prevalence of self-harm in the UK and think about what might drive so many people to engage in self harming behaviours. Having identified some of the reasons that people engage in self harming behaviours we think together in detail about possible alternatives.

The course aims to enable students from different backgrounds to locate resources and describe alternatives as appropriate to their need.
