First I want to say I so appreciate the people already who have reached out around online support for people with eating disorders and I look forward to hopefully getting more comments.
Now I wanted to ask another favor. If anyone can recommend any books specifically for people dealing with self injury. There’s an awesome book the clinical director of my facility found called Self Injury: Simple Answers to Complex Questions by the Alexian Brothers self-injury recovery center. It’s a great book answering every question under the sun from anyone effected: people who do it, parents/ friends/ teachers/ family/ therapists/ doctors ETC. But a lot of it is full of professional language and reads like a textbook. It’s great for the staff here but I’m looking for something that’s more user friendly for people living with the problem.
Any suggestions? One thing I don’t want to use is the SAFE literature. I read Bodily Harm and just don’t agree with a lot of their approach. Anything else is fine.
Please I’d love some suggestions! You’d be helping lots of people with these recommendations!
