Students with Scars: Understanding Self Injury
The reality of the pain and struggles that many of our students experience is becoming more apparent, and unfortunately the coping strategy of "self-harm" is becoming more common. There is a lot of fear, misunderstanding, myth, judgement and confusion surrounding why and how students self-injure and we are left wondering how best to react (or not?) and support them as they cope. This session will provide some insight into the reasons students self-harm, the various forms this behavior can take, and the best strategies for prevention and support through both their physical and emotional healing.

Failure to Launch: Career Counselling to Unstick the Stuck
"What are you going to do after graduation?" An increasing number of young folks are rejecting conventional notions of career, and some are simply doing what their parents and peers would call 'nothing'. Mental illness is often the cause; some young folks don't know how to be courageous. Some young people see no meaning in the 'adult' routine. The reasons vary. Conventional asset-inventory and aptitude-testing methods of career counselling often fizzle with unwell teens. This session presents a meaning-based model grounded in adventure and risk-taking to help young folks harness their innate vibrancy and spirit to launch a meaningful and joyful life. Session participants will receive replicable worksheets and ideas for activities to foster boldness in future-thinking. This session is designed for School Counsellors, CALM teachers, Career Practitioners, and everyone else.
