Stopping the Pain: Teenage Self-Injury

Synopsis
The number of adolescents injuring themselves is growing. In this programme, several young people describe what led them to self-injury, how they got help, and how they found healthy ways to deal with their problems. Some of the reasons for self-injury are identified: to punish themselves for not being ‘perfect’, to relieve emotional stress, to feel less numb, and to feel in control when everything else in their lives seems to be out of control. Sections include an introduction, why people self-injure, increased self-injury, getting help, helping other people who self-injure and getting better.
