The Cornell University College of Human Ecology categorizes self-injury as intentional carving or cutting of the skin, subdermal tissue scratching, intentional burning, banging or punching oneself, and embedding objects under the skin. To date, sixteen forms of self-injury have been documented, and recent studies show that there is no one "profile" for self-harm. This critical edition discusses self-mutilation and other self-harm behaviors. Chapters explore why some individuals harm themselves, the risks of self-injury, and how to treat and prevent it.

The author is straightforward, yet sympathetic and supportive, in detailing the dangers of the behavior and how teens can help themselves or others to stop.
