This conference is a must for any child professional who feels anxious, de-skilled or out of their depth to help children and teenagers who, in a desperate state, turn aggressively against themselves. Presenters will support delegates to shift from impotent bystanders to be able to engage these children and teenagers in meaningful dialogue to move from self-destructive ways of being in the world to healthier energised engagement.
