Suicide and Self-Harm continues to be of major concern for health care professionals, often because the associated behaviours are in such conflict with the principles and motivations associated with being a healthcare practitioner.

During this workshop, you’ll explore the challenge of dealing with the confliction of preserving life and preventing harm, when faced with intentional death or high risk behaviour.
