DescriptionThis DVD explores new ways to engage positively and productively with people who self harm. Self harm is often used as a survival strategy and a means for service users and survivors to communicate something about the grinding realities in which they live their lives, but is often treated with fear, annoyance and, at times, outright hostility. Championing the Harm Minimisation approach, this DVD is aimed at professionals, while remaining accessible to service users. Features include: testimonies from those who self harm and from those who encounter it in health care settings; a focus on the importance of understanding and response to self harm for the delivery of helpful and supportive services; an in-depth look at the need for, and use of, Harm Minimisation strategies within a range of health care settings; interviews with a range of key figures within the field; a supporting comprehensive information pack.
