The competency frameworks describe activities that need to be brought together to support people who self-harm and/or are suicidal.
The frameworks, which have a range of applications, overlap in terms of their content, but help describe the work that is required within different populations and contexts.
- Working with children and young people
- Working with adults and older people
- Working with the public
- Service users and carers
The applications include:
- Developing training curricula for practitioners from a range of clinical and professional backgrounds
- Evaluating existing training
- Evaluating practice in existing services
- Reflecting on and supervising individual professional practice
- Identifying good practice and helping those receiving support to understand what they can expect from their care.
The frameworks, along with their background documents, are available to view and download at the University College London website.
