Kids Changing Our Direction offer a variety of supportive courses that help families in the Wakefield area whose young people present with self-harm behaviours. We work with families of young people aged 11-16 years, including those with mild/moderate learning disabilities, additional needs, Autism and ADHD/ADD.
Our courses are available to any adult who has responsibility for bringing up the child. That could include parents, step-parents, grandparents or childminders.
The Families Learning About Self Harm programme (FLASH) aims to enhance communication and personal relationships between parent/carers and young people. It includes:
The FLASH programme is delivered over ten 2-hour workshops in a small group-setting.
For families who cannot commit to attending every workshop we also deliver the Self-Harm Information Project (SHIP). This is a half-day workshop covering self-harm risks and functions, the teen brain and impact on behaviour, self-esteem boosting strategies and coping strategies.
We also deliver the Self-Harm Information Project as a series of video recordings for families to access at an individually convenient time alongside regular support calls.
