Stopping the Pain

An Instant Help for Teens Workbook for Teens Who Cut and Self Injure

By Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D.

(Grades 6-12) Self-injury can be a disturbing symptom of a variety of conditions, including eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. Teens who self-injure often cut or burn themselves, but may also engage in other harmful practices. Stopping the Pain helps teens and their counselors discover the root causes of self-injury and develop a program to end this dangerous behavior.

The book begins with a series of exercises designed to help teens understand why they self-injure and to dispel myths about self-injury. It goes on to help them tackle self-esteem issues, recognize and disarm the triggers that lead to self-injury, communicate about self-injury, cope with difficult emotions, and commit to change. More than 10 percent of teenagers have experimented with self-injury, according to published research. This book offers help for any teen caught up in this dangerous habit. Softcover, 148 pages.
