Default Self Injury Resources

Since the amount of stickied topics was getting a bit nuts, I'm going to condense them all here... so people can add new resources they've found, and all that sort of thing. Please try to keep the discussion here to a minimum since it makes it a bit crowded.

So, if you've got a resource to share that's helping you deal with self-injury, post away! It can be a link, or a document - anything you want that's a positive coping mechanism.
(originally posted by Kiya here: http://forums.psychcentral.com/showthread.php?t=83848)
  • Impulse Control Log (posted by sunflower55) "The impulse control log is taken from S.A.F.E and is geared specifically for self-injury but can be used for many types of compulsions. With the impulse control log it is required that you log down every thought or feeling associated with a particular urge to self injure, whether or not you actually go through with the act or not. In the beginning the goal is that the writing will become a diversion from the act itself. The long-term goal is to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors." For more infomation, please go here: http://forums.psychcentral.com/showthread.php?t=98107 to learn more!
"Alan Marlatt coined the term used to describe allowing ourselves to think of our urges as waves which we can watch, follow, and see diminish, like ocean waves. The technique works best for people who have had done some work with mindfulness and/or meditation ... This technique can work for the urge to use drugs, to drink, to emotionally eat, to self injure, etc. Unhealthy urges of all kinds can be watched, studied, and allowed to pass. They died off like that crashing wave on the beach. Yes, another will come. But know that you can watch that one pass as well."

Default Re: Self Injury Resources

Some good self-injury related books:

  • "Secret Scars: Uncovering and Understanding the Addiction of Self-Injury" by V.J. Turner <--- really good read and informative
  • "Helping Teens Who Cut: Understanding and Ending Self-Injury" by Michael Hollander <--- good book for understanding others self injury
  • "The Scarred Soul: Understanding & Ending Self-Inflicted Violence" by Tracy Alderman <--- good book
  • "Freedom From Self-Harm: Overcoming Self-Injury with Skills from DBT and Other Treatments" by Kim L. Gratz and Alexander L. Chapman <-- haven't read it yet, but it looks good
  • "Cutting" by Steven Levenkron <-- My ALL-TIME favourite book on the subject of self-injury.
  • "Bloodletting: A Memoir of Secrets, Self-Harm and Survival" by Victoria Leatham <-- very scary read and hard in parts but really good
  • "Bodies under Siege: Self-mutilation And Body Modification in Culture and Psychiatry" by Armando R. Favazza <-- This is a more academic book.

Many telephone counselling services and other community organisations have chosen NOT to have Caller Display. However, to guarantee your confidentiality, you should always dial the Number Withhold Code 0197, before you dial their number.

Numbers for other organisations can be obtained from Citizens Advice Bureau (dial their number or look at their website (
www.cab.org.nz) or by looking under "Community Services" in the Yellow Pages.

"When the world says 'Give up,' Hope whispers 'Try it one more time'" ~ Unknown

"To dwell in the here and the now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibility, plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about past or worries about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness by looking into the past, but you are still grounded in the present moment"
Thich Nhat Hanh
