So last month I found myself in the beautiful city of Dubai delivering training on self injury and eating disorders.
Participants included counsellors, teachers, psychologists & pastoral staff from a variety of educational establishments around Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Despite the serious nature of the subjects much fun was had!
The day aimed to both promote awareness and offer creative interventions and ways of working with young people. It also provided a much needed space where professionals were able to share their thoughts and experience of working with young people struggling with these issues.
I’m delighted that participants left feeling more informed about eating disorders and self injury and further empowered to continue the invaluable work with the young people they support.
