Changing Our Direction

The Active Centre, Stansfield Road Airedale Castleford, WF10 3UA


Changing Our Direction has been set up to support families who have young people who present with self harm behaviours. KIDS work with parents and carers to help them support their young people. Changing Our Direction looks to support families through the FLASH program.

What is FLASH?

FLASH is Families Learning about self harm. The FLASH workshop is for parents and carers of young people who present with self harm behaviours.

What does the course cover?

The course aims to create better communication and personal relationships between parent/carers and young people. FLASH allows parents the opportunity to discuss the problem with people who understand and learn how to manage the concerns within your home.

It will include:

Exploring what self-harm is, what the risks are and what is the function of self-harm.

Listening and self-esteem enabling skills.

Managing self-harm within the family environment.

How self-harm impacts on parenting and ways to manage under stressful circumstances.

Coping strategies for parents and carers.

 The FLASH program is delivered in a group session with other families and is a 10 week workshop.
