CPD Details

Self harm, self care and the way between


Saturday 1 July 2017

Time: 10am – 4pm


The relationship between self-harm and suicidal behaviour will be explored. Drawing on DVD footage and service user testimony, we will consider how individuals who self-harm conceptualise their own experience, attending to both the aetiology and function of self-harming behaviour.


Dr. Maggie Turp is a psychodynamic psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice and a chartered psychologist. Her academic career has included lectureships at the University of Reading and at Birkbeck College, London. Since retiring from mainstream academic life, she has been an external examiner and visiting lecturer at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.


For the past decade, Maggie’s educational work has included the provision of CPD training workshops for regionally based associations of counsellors and psychotherapists. These reflect her longstanding interest in the emergence of psychological distress in the physical realm and the enduring nature of early, body-centred modes of relating. The clinical themes addressed in the workshops include self-harm, depression, psychosomatic illness, and the aftermath of trauma.
