Organisation: Open Space Therapy


One day workshop facilitated by Dr Maggie Turp on the research and findings of working with self harm and suicidal clients, particularly those who cut.

Dr Maggie Turp’s fascinating workshop offers space for clinicians to explore the relationship between self-harm & suicidal behaviour, & how individuals who self-harm conceptualise their own experience, attending to both the aetiology & function of self-harming behaviour.

Amongst other aspects of self harm, the workshop offers space for clinical reflection & a model for self-harm will be presented for discussion. If any of you have worked with Maggie before, you will know what a well researched and personable presenter she is.
