Mental Health Today
With the alarming rise in deliberate self-harm among young people, especially girls, there is a need for greater understanding of this important issue. Here is a book that provides this, with a comprehensive overview of the nature and the extent of deliberate self-harm in adolescents… The very practical recommendations and the guidelines provided in the appendices give useful pointers towards identifying vulnerable young people early on, and helping them address their problems before self-harming behaviours become very firmly entrenched patterns of coping. This is an invaluable resource for anyone working with young people, and specifically for teachers, social workers, mental health professionals, policy makers and researchers with an interest in this age group.
