Summary

In many countries there has been an alarming increase in rates of suicide and self-harm, yet the stigma attached to these difficulties often leads to sub-optimal care.

Life After Self-Harm: A Guide to the Future is written for individuals who have deliberately harmed themselves. Developed through a major research project the contents of the manual have been informed and shaped by many users and expert professionals. Illustrated with multiple case-histories, it teaches users important skills:

  • for understanding and evaluating self-harm
  • for keeping safe in crisis
  • for dealing with seemingly insolvable problems
  • for developing coping strategies
  • for re-connecting with life.

Health workers who regularly come into contact with individuals who have self-harmed will find the wealth of practical advice in this book extremely valuable for recommendation to patients either as a self-help book, or in the context of brief therapy.
