As someone else mentioned this book is best for kids who are (or developmentally) under 14. This book has lots of basic information someone would appreciate if they have never dealt with or treated self-harmers. I was excited by the prospect of this book but disappointed to see it was all information I've known for years and I already use or plan to use many of the activities. There were a few things I hadn't thought of that were clever. Also, this is a "Christian" take on curing self-harm. They don't flat out say it, but it's pretty clear. Prayer is used as a method of healing. They tried to make it generalized by putting pictures of a boy in a yarmulke and kids in Muslim garb along with the Christian kid, but all of the examples of prayer/God are definitely the Christian methods. Either way, this book is good for beginners in this subject but if you've had a good deal of experience it's not going to be much new info. I also found the format in general to be a bit juvenile, but that's just my style.

I love this book. My professor let me borrow it as a source for a paper. I liked it so much I got it for myself. I find that the activities in here are great for counselors that aren't just working with clients that self-harm but great for clients with low self-esteem, depression, grief, anxiety, etc. Good for all ages as well.

I was very disappointed when I received this book. This book has activities that would be appropriate for preteen adolescents or children. When I read the title and it had "helping young people who self-injure" in the description, I thought it would be geared more toward adolescents... not children and preteen- I guess that was my mistake. Most activities are too juvenile to be used for adolescents over the age of 13. If you are working with younger adolescents/children you would probably be happy with the activities.

I received this book in a timely fashion. The product was in great condition. I will use this with my clients as it appears to be easy to follow and has good material within it.

This activity book was a great resource! I used it for a group processing course and was able to get some awesome handouts that you are able to reproduce. Completely recommend this activity book.
I recommend this book for all therapists and lay-people who work or want to support adolescents who have self-harming behaviors.
