Books I've read

A Bright Red Scream: Self-Mutilation and the Language of Pain by Marilee Strong. Probably one of the best books out there... presents the voices of people who self-injure very well

The Scarred Soul: Understanding & Ending Self-Inflicted Violence by Tracy Alderman. Terrific workbook, lots of strategies to stop self-injuring

Skin Game by Caroline Kettlewell. A very powerful memoir which I've just started reading

The Luckiest Girl in the World by Steven Levenkron. Fiction about a figure skater who self-injures. If the title seems familiar, it's because Mr. Levenkoron is also the man who wrote Best Little Girl in the World, about anorexia.

Crosses by Shelley Stoer. Fiction about two teens struggling with self-injury

Bodily Harm: The Breakthrough Healing Program for Self-Injurers by Karen Conterio, et al. This is from the S.A.F.E. Alternatives people. They seem to be promoting their own program, for the most part.

Cutting: Understanding and Overcoming Self-Mutilation by Steven Levenkron. Yep, he's at it again.
