What is self-injury? Why would people deliberately hurt themselves? Why can't they stop? What can I do to help? These questions are asked and answered in Secret Scars, a revealing look at the addiction of self-injury. Self-injury is one of the fastest growing health problems among teenage girls today. Despite its prevalence, however, self-injury remains a behavior shrouded in mystery and misconceptions. Secret Scars is a groundbreaking book that demystifies self-injury by explaining it as an addiction.

The author takes both an engaging and scholarly approach to help the reader understand the dynamics involved in self-injury. Not only does Turner share case histories and her personal struggle as a former self-injurer, she backs it up by citing studies, research findings, and clinical outcomes.

Features

  • defines self-injury as a treatable addictive disorder
  • an important resource for parents, educators, and mental health professionals
  • authoritative and accessible information about a growing health concern
  • personal stories validate experiences and concerns of readers
