Abstract:

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a global mental health concern with studies conservatively indicating 10% of young people experiment with self-harm. The ways in which young people self-harm are wide and varied, and a challenge many families now have to face. It remains distressing and difficult for parents and caring adults to understand, as it seems to go against every innate instinct of self-protection and survival. In this book, award- winning speaker, author and educator Michelle Mitchell has combined her 20 years' experience, with the latest research, interviews with experts and stories from professionals and everyday families, to give parents and teachers fresh insights into how to prevent, understand and respond to self-harm. Full of evidence-based strategies, this unique resource will provide parents with the facts, practical help and comfort they need.
