Self Injury -- IrishUp -- a summary of "A Clinical Assessment of Self Injury: A Practical Guide", including helpful tips about self-injury behaviors
"This paper is aimed at therapists, but it contains very practical information about what cutting/SI *is* and *is not*, and what can be done about it.  While parents are emphatically NOT therapists or treatment professionals, they CAN use a lot of the same tools to evaluate whether the SI is serious and needs immediate attention, needs to be treated in addition to ED, or may resolve on it's own. Parents can ALSO do much to intervene and coach their kids away from SI behaviors."
