Format: Paperback
The first time you come into contact with self harm can be scary. It can be hard to understand what drives someone to physically hurt themselves, and what makes them continue. Self harm now affects one in ten people - mainly teenagers, but not exclusively, so if you're a youth worker or a teacher it would be surprising if you didn't come across it. Kate Middleton and Sara Garvie have done a fantastic job in demystifying the whole area of self harm, providing practical advice and wisdom born from their own valuable experience.

They start with looking at what self harm is and how it develops as people struggle to cope with intense emotions. They look at how people recover from self harm with strategies for expressing the emotion that feels overwhelming and overcoming negative thought patterns. The final section of the book contains excellent advice for parents, youth workers and others who want to help those who self harm. Interwoven are real life stories from young people who have self harmed, and the road they are on to recovery. These moving accounts ground the theory in the reality of people's lives.

Ultimately this is a very hopeful book, showing that recovery is possible but being realistic about how it happens.

This book didn't give me much advice on how to stop self harming apart from 'try to delay the self harm'. It was very compassionate and did offer some help in explaining why people self harm and giving first hand accounts but it didn't offer that many practical stopping techniques. In actual fact it just gave me more ideas.

Having that particular problem, i have been reading quite a lot on the subject but i found this book much easier to read and really helpfull. It explains in a simple way how self harm works and what steps recovery needs. Although the book certainly helps more along with psychotherapy, I would recommend it even for those that choose not to have a therapist. It may also help family and others understand the situation and the mind of the "patient" in order to be more of a help to him/her. Personally I bought it also as a gift to my therapist as it very simply expresses thoughts that I haven't been able to vocalize.

Another excellent book on the way to help me understand but also how to help a very close relative who felt that nobody could help her. It is going to be a long hard struggle as she refuses to see either her GP or seek any other help as she is so sure that she is beyond help, I have at least managed to get her to talk to me and we try to solve any problems that have occured during the day. This is not easy but without having read the book first I would not have had any idea at all.

I work a lot with young people who self harm and there can be many different triggers. This book looks at a range of strategies that can be very helpful to people who are unsure about Self Harm and it's effects on others. It won't give you all the answers as this is a psychological illness but it will help you to understand some of the do's and don't's when trying to support someone who has started to Self Harm. Well written and a good starting point for a first time reader.
