Reviews

"Giving voice to a silent anguish, this book should be read by all those incarcerated in the loneliness of self-harm. This book will appeal to those who self-harm, their friends and families, and their care providers. To each it speaks a unique message, but to each it also speaks of hope, providing a thorough understanding of what seems like a senseless behavior. The authors provide a framework for change, and practical recommendations to address this most difficult and confusing experience. For some, it will initiate the building blocks of empathy. For many, it will help them feel supported and not alone. But I hope for most it will serve as a guide, paving the return path for integration into our communities of those who feel the most isolated." -- Joseph A. Shrand, M.D., Director, Child and Adolescent Outpatient Clinic and Attending Psychiatrist, Acute Adolescent Residential Treatment Center
