Format: Paperback
I ordered this book for my daughter in hopes that she would be willing to use this form of self-help given that she refuses counselling. My husband and I read the book together before giving it to our daughter and both agreed it is excellent. It is written concisely, intelligently, and laid out in chapters that are brief enough to avoid overwhelming the child yet in-depth enough to have substance and meaning. We cannot force our children to become willing to stop self-injuring, but we can remain calm and hopeful as we provide them with an array of opportunities to get better. Bibliotherapy is an option and while our daughter is not ready to talk to a counsellor/therapist/psychologist, for the 2nd night in a row, she has opened this book and is willing to read, reflect, and write with very little prompting from us. The book is hers. She will get to the chapter that recommends counselling and perhaps, coming from Shapiro and after reflecting on the chapters that lead up to that one, it will strike more of a chord and her readiness will be there. She will need all the help she can get to stop and stay stopped. Cutting is just a symptom of underlying issues - in our case, it is social anxiety which lead to moderate depression and now cutting. I wish I could start a support group for parents!

HASH(0x9ffb1f30) out of 5 stars The First Step May 1 2011
By Tuffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book within a few weeks of my first SI. I guess I knew cutting wasn't the best way to handle my I ssues. All I wanted was to stop the pain. I Googled the titile before I ever knew there was a book. I didn't tell my parents about it when it came. In fact, it sat on my shelf in my room for almost two months, unwritten in. During that time I would look through it occasionally when I was having a craving, it would sometimes help. The first few chapters says that its important to tell someone. No one knew for the longest time. I scared my self badly enough one day after I SIed that I brought the book to my parents. Since then I've worked through some of the chapters. I'd be lying if I told you it was "the cure" that my parents seem to think it is. I still cut, or slam my self into corners, 3 or 4 times a week. -which is actually an improvement. Its going to take a lot more than just a workbook to overcome this. As parents with kids who do what I do and have this book, look through their the book with them and talk about their SI with it....just because they don't say anything about it, or you don't see their scars, doesn't mean it went away. It means they're getting better at hiding it - wheather they want to or not. Act like you care. Don't freak out or pretend its not their. Either way won't work. Its a good book. - for anyone out there looking for a way to stop...this book can help. Even if you don't want to stop,(like me) it will still give you something to think about. Good luck to everyone, and wish me the same.

HASH(0xa0470bac) out of 5 stars "Excelent workbook" May 16 2008
By More - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter, we are learning about self injury, unfortunately where I live, there is almost any information about SI, when my daughter opened this book, she didn't wanna stop reading it, there are a lot of interesting excercises that help teens to understand what they're going thru, and it says them what to do, to learn to live free and be happy, without having to hurt themselves, I give 5 stars to this book, it's great.

HASH(0x9fdee96c) out of 5 stars Stopping The Pain Nov. 15 2010
By L. K. Entler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Upon advice of my daughter's counselor, I purchased this book in order to help with my daughter's mental health treatment. It gives teens that cut on themselves tools in which to stop the destructive behavior, and use different tools in order to deal with life on life's terms. My daughter is just beginning her treatment, but I have already seen progress, & she has successfully not cut on herself for over 6 weeks! One day at a time, lots of love & support, & her willingness to work on herself makes all the difference!
