Interest Age: 4 to 16

Help young people to explore and understand feelings behind self-harming behaviour.

Practical and creative ideas, strategies and worksheets will help address issues underlying self-harm which are often stuck in repetitive and destructive cycles.

Deals with feelings experienced in self-harm, e.g., guilt, fear, loneliness, lack of self-worth and negative body image. Takes a mindfulness and positive communication approach of 'How I am feeling' rather than 'Why are you doing this?'.

Ideal for parents, therapists and teachers alike.
