A practical and accessible guide to understanding self-harming behaviour.
Self-harm and suicidal behaviours are increasingly common in young people. It can be hard to know what causes someone to self-harm, and how to help and support them. Outlines what self-harm is, how to recognise it, and how best to respond. Combines case studies with professional and practical advice, covering all aspects from warning signs and treatment to communication and effects on families. Also emphasises the importance of parents and carers seeking support for themselves. An invaluable source of information and guidance for parents, teachers, youth workers, and anyone caring for a young person showing signs of self-harm.
