Short Introduction to Helping Children and Young People Who Self-Harm


Product Description

Published UK, 2012
Carol Fitzpatrick uses an easy-to-read, jargon free and positive approach to tackle the stigma attached to self-harm and suicidal behaviour. Her book combines case studies with professional advice to help the reader take the first steps towards helping the young person in need. It advises on how to distinguish between normal adolescent behaviour and the signs of mental health problems, while showing how an adult can sensitively communicate with a teenager about the difficult subject. The book is a perfect starting point for any parent or professional who is caring for children or young people.
