Hello, My name is Tania and I work in an all
girls group home. I was wondering if you could give me some
documentation on self harm and intervention methods that I could try
with one of the girls I work with?
Thanks for your attention; I am hoping to hear from you soon.
A great resource on the topic of self-harm in terms
of research and information is called:
A Bright Red Scream
Suggest you have a look at this Cornell site http://www.crpsib.com/whatissi.asp
Johnnie Gibson (Ireland)
Check out the above website. If you go under Google (or any other engine) type in "self-harm" or "self-injurious behaviors" and several websites will come up.
Have a good one...
I found The truth about self harm: or young people and their friends and family by Celia Richardson quite good.
Hello. In addition to the helpful suggestions here, I also recommend the Interdisciplinary National Self-Injury in Youth Network Canada
This website includes a number of useful resources for youth, family members and professionals. It also includes recent research on the topic.
Hope you find this useful.
Awesome website! (http://www.crpsib.com/whatissi.asp)
