Synopsis

Self-Injury The Ultimate Teen Guide by Judy Dodge Cummings

According to one statistic, six percent of male teens and ten percent of female teens intentionally injure themselves. Unfortunately, this once unusual form of expression has become more commonplace. This book looks at the causes of why teens resort to self-injury and the different ways that young adults resort to this harmful form of expression. The book also offers advice for family and friends on what signs to look for when they suspect someone is inuring him or herself. The book also offers productive alternatives for teens to express themselves-as other coping strategies. In addition to insights from experts, this book features first hand comments from teens who share their stories of despair and ultimately, hope and recovery.
