Book Description

Sept. 1 1997
It happens whenever a person deliberately and repeatedly cuts or burn themselves, or purposefully hurts themselves in some other way. It's disturbing and dangerous behavior, and so hard to stop that many researchers consider it a kind of addiction. This is the first book written for the victims of self-inflicted violence and the first to teach them what they can do to stop hurting themselves. The Scarred Soul explores the reasons behind the impulse to self-inflicted harm and shows readers how to examine its impact on their lives and take steps to overcome the psychological traps that lead to self-inflicted pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed March 3 2005
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blessing Jan. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

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. Use it with a notebook at your elbow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being a Scarred Soul Dec 20 2001
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat okay, a little typical Dec 2 2001
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I found this book to be VERY HELPFUL!!! Dec 2 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.
