Self-Harm and Cutting


Self-harm is a heavy subject, but one that many young people deal with today. Statistics show that this behavior is increasing. This sensitive, informative guide addresses what self-harm is, who is particularly vulnerable, and how it is treated. The role of friends and family is explored as well as doctors and medical and mental health professionals. Information on other coexisting conditions, such as substance abuse and childhood abuse and neglect, help readers get a true picture of why people cut themselves. Advice for how to cope with strong emotions and stories adapted from survivors explore the range of issues involved.
