If you're looking for books to read about damaged personalities, I can highly recommend this one, along with two others: BRIGHT RED SCREAM and a collection titled THE CHILDREN'S CORNER by Jackson McCrae. Both are excellent, but first you must tackle THE SCARRED SOUL. I'm not even finished yet but i think it's a book for all self injurers to go out and buy. You keep a notebook and it has work book sections to help you with your self injury. And the point the author makes is fantastic. I think anyone who is confused about Self injury should High-lite the whole beginning section of the book. I think it is the best explanation a book has ever given for SI. Doing the workbook exercises is a great idea. It helps in understanding and working on your self injurious behavior. I think the author is an amazingly bright person and she has created a masterpiece.

I bought this book for myself because I self-injure, and lent it to my therapist, a friend of mine whose daughter self-injures, and friends who know I injure and feel a need to understand. Now I have to order more copies as they want copies of their own. The scarred soul includes the all latest thinking on SIV. It is much more accurate about why people injure, and when and how they can stop than other books I have read on the subject. The writing is clear, direct and accessable. I found it hard to read through only because it so accurately describes the pain I feel. I hope it goes through many editions and becomes a standard work. If you cut or hurt yourself, or care for someone who does, this book can help you 'keep safe'.

This book is encouraging. I now know how to react to my friend's SIV. I have read some books on the subject that have enlightened me, but not encouraged me. This book encourages me.
I will give this book to my friend. It is THE book for those who want to help themselves and those who want to help others affected by SIV. There is a solution. This book is a first step to that solution. The solution? Read the book.
The book has a number of typos. But who cares? I'll take typos with peace of mind any day.

When I ordered this book I truly did not know to what extent it would help me but it has helped volumes! This book looks at why people use SIV (Self inflicted Violence) and also helps you learn why you or others may use it and how to stop it. "Scarred Soul," has opened up my eyes and my mind in so many new ways. With the frequency of SIV now a days this is an important book for everyone to have to help understand but especially helpful for the users of SIV. To me this book is priceless!

This is the best book I have read on Self Injury and how to deal with it and to eventually stop self injury. This is the book that helped me to finally get a handle on my own self injury patterns and I have now been able to go almost 1 year with self injuring.
I recommend this book to EVERYONE....particualry other self injurers and their loved ones, and also to therapists. I gave a copy of this book to my therapist to use with other clients and she too has found it to be invaluable.

I want to lend this book to so many people so they can understand self-injury. It has been very helpful to me. I haven't stopped SIV, but I know why I do it more now than I ever did before. I recommend it to anyone who self-injures or to anyone who cares about someone who self-injures. This book should be considered the authority on SIV. I may buy a copy for my mom, so she can understand something she thinks is sick.

This book is the most difficult one I have ever read ... because of all the reflection and introspection that is involved in the activities. I have not stopped SIV yet, but with this book I finally see some hope that I can defeat this inner demon. This is a great book that has given me insight into my SIV that I never had before. I recommend it highly to anyone who has SIV or is close to someone with SIV.

The exercises in this book really help you to understand more about SIV. It helps you to determine the type of SIV you may have. As a SIV person, I found this book to be easy to understand and it helped me to reach the next level..geting help. I didn't know much about SIV , this book is a definite must have. It was helpful for my husband so that he could understand more about what I was going through.
