As an experienced clinician often working with high risk teens, I've long-found self-injuring -- cutting, burning and more -- both disturbing & frustrating. Disturbing because this self-violence against their own bodies IS deeply disturbing, not only for parents, but also for those of us who care for and care about these young people. Frustrating because these teens often present serious, serious challenges in building relationships, ESPECIALLY on their self-injuring. And clearly teen self-injuring, now, doesn't mean mostly what it did back in the 1980's, when it was more limited to proto-borderlines and other victims of fairly extreme abuse.

That abuse/borderline population is still there, but there's a whole lot more. This book well-shows this in its chapters on epidemiology and on teen self-injuring, how widespread self-injuring now is in the teen high school community -- 13-23%! Up to nearly 1 in 4 high school students! Recent surveys suggest self-injuring includes not only teens -- average age to start self-injuring being 12-14 years old -- but self-injuring carries on through young adulthood, including college students. Young adults, 18 and 25, have rates even higher. One college reported, in a survey, rates similar to hospitalized adolescents, around 40%. Nor is self-injuring only female -- some recent studies suggest rates are becoming more the same between boys & girls. Given that many if not most teens hide their self-injuring, these rates could easily be higher. Truly shocking.

Worse, repetitive self-injury can be a precursor to suicide attempts and, especially with males, even completed suicide. One study found that 44% of a sample of teens who completed suicide had previously repetitively self-harmed.
