Insight into Self-Harm

Insight into Self-Harm




How well do we understand the lonely, often secret, world of self harm? The authors of Insight into Self Harm aim both to develop awareness and to offer solutions to anyone whose life is touched by the problem. The practical tools in this book offer real hope for recovery.

Key insights in this book include:

  • the nature of self harm and its underlying causes
  • the path to physical and spiritual recovery
  • dealing with relapse
  • tips for those who help and support

Drawing on case studies, personal and professional experience, the authors offer practical and spiritual help to those who suffer and those who care as they grapple with the issues involved.

The Waverley Abbey Insight Series is based on one-day seminars held by CWR at Waverley Abbey House to give insight into some key issues that many people struggle with today.
