    Rate this media item:


    • What is self-injury? Why would people deliberately hurt themselves? Why can’t they stop? What can I do to help? These question are asked and answered in SECRET SCARS, a revealing look at the addiction of self-injury. Self-injury is one of the fastest growing health problems among teenage girls today. Despite its prevalence, however, self-injury remains a behavior shrouded in mystery and misconceptions. SECRET SCARS is a groundbreaking book that demystifies self-injury by explaining it as an addiction. The author takes both an engaging and scholarly approach to help the reader understand the dynamics involved in self-injury. Not only does Turner share case histories and her personal struggle as a former self-injurer, she backs it up by citing studies, research findings, and clinical outcomes.

    This book would probably be most useful
    for non-self-injurers to try and
    understand and help friends or loved
    ones. The book is supposed to my
    oriented to the self-injurer, but I felt
    patronized by this book. The author also
    has an extreme view of faith and
    overcoming self-injury.
