Living With Self-harm Behaviour

ISBN 9789814634229

Book E-Book

Young persons who intentionally harm themselves are largely misunderstood in society. They are misunderstood by parents, teachers, peers and even the medical personnel who treat them. Just what is self-harm? Why do teenagers want to cut their wrists or forearms? Does such behaviour lead to suicide? And what are the signs to look out for? This book presents the facts for anyone who interacts with children and teenagers. Revised and updated, Living with Self-harm Behaviours is part of a series of handbooks on mental health in children written by mental health professionals from the Child Guidance Clinic.
