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.
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.

This book is insightful, non threatening and the least likely to be used as a how-to book by those who self-harm. I recommend it for clarity and usefulness. Read morePublished on Aug. 27 2002
This book is helpful, but only for those near an injurer, not for the injurer themself. It can be a little boring and everything is typical. So there's not much for it.Published on Dec 2 2001 by Katie Rose
