I bought this book within a few weeks of my first SI. I guess I knew cutting wasn't the best way to handle my I ssues. All I wanted was to stop the pain. I Googled the titile before I ever knew there was a book. I didn't tell my parents about it when it came. In fact, it sat on my shelf in my room for almost two months, unwritten in. During that time I would look through it occasionally when I was having a craving, it would sometimes help. The first few chapters says that its important to tell someone. No one knew for the longest time. I scared my self badly enough one day after I SIed that I brought the book to my parents. Since then I've worked through some of the chapters. I'd be lying if I told you it was "the cure" that my parents seem to think it is. I still cut, or slam my self into corners, 3 or 4 times a week. -which is actually an improvement. Its going to take a lot more than just a workbook to overcome this. As parents with kids who do what I do and have this book, look through their the book with them and talk about their SI with it....just because they don't say anything about it, or you don't see their scars, doesn't mean it went away. It means they're getting better at hiding it - wheather they want to or not. Act like you care. Don't freak out or pretend its not their. Either way won't work. Its a good book. - for anyone out there looking for a way to stop...this book can help. Even if you don't want to stop,(like me) it will still give you something to think about. Good luck to everyone, and wish me the same.

I bought this book for my daughter, we are learning about self injury, unfortunately where I live, there is almost any information about SI, when my daughter opened this book, she didn't wanna stop reading it, there are a lot of interesting excercises that help teens to understand what they're going thru, and it says them what to do, to learn to live free and be happy, without having to hurt themselves, I give 5 stars to this book, it's great.

As a counselor I have found this book a valuable source in helping the teens I see with SI. Easy format and the teen actually enjoy working through the book and discussing it.

I got this product for my 15 year old daughter.Her social worker loved the book and my daughter liked it.I only gave it 4 stars because i don't know how well it's going to work in the long run.She has had the book seven months and i think they haven't used it in 2 but she stopped cutting shortly after getting the book.about 3 months later.so am happy about that.I would highly recommend the book.

Upon advice of my daughter's counselor, I purchased this book in order to help with my daughter's mental health treatment. It gives teens that cut on themselves tools in which to stop the destructive behavior, and use different tools in order to deal with life on life's terms. My daughter is just beginning her treatment, but I have already seen progress, & she has successfully not cut on herself for over 6 weeks! One day at a time, lots of love & support, & her willingness to work on herself makes all the difference!

Format: Paperback
If you work with kids/adolescents who engage in self-injurious behaviors as I do, this is a bible. Dr. Shapiro is on the mark with this one and provides exercises that are easily adaptable to your treatment plans with your patients/clients. I even had one patient (I'm a Psychotherapist) who wrote a letter during one of our sessions to Dr. Shapiro thanking him profusely for engineering this book, but decided she didn't feel brave enough to mail so we shredded it. This is indictive of the impact this book has for my patients and even provides safety contracts, letter forms to families that may be too difficult for the child to otherwise express, and even a personal prayer handout if the child/adolescent has strong spiritual beliefs (which is extrememly important to tap into for additional coping/survival mechanisms). I love Dr. Shapiro's work so much that I don't know why it hasn't gone viral such as Dr. Linehan's DBT Model, Dr. David Burns, M.D. Affective Model denoting 'feeling good', or even William Glasser's Choice/Reality Theory. I could go on and on about Dr. Shapiro, but you just need to order this book and you will be hooked. The only downside, if there is one, is how much $$ I have invested over the years on all his wealth of treatment books; it's an addiction I'm not willing to control or give up any time soon.
