Interested in innovation and contemplative ministry.

If you're involved in working with young people, then it's almost a certainty that you'll find yourself working with self-harmers. Depending on which data you read, somewhere between 1 in 10 and 1 in 4 people self-harm at some point in their lives, yet until now there's been little research or expertise available on the issue. This short but effective book from Kate Middleton and Sara Garvie gives me everything I need to know to understand what self-harm is, how it develops, and also how to help a young person struggling with it.

Full of practical help, and vitally including the voices of four young people with first-hand experience of self-harm, this book is essential reading for everyone working with young people - not just those with a specific interest in the subject.
