To browse visit here. Common Myths about selfinjury. self-harm is usually afailed suicide attempt. National self-injury Awareness Day. March 1, 2002.
Approximately 1% of the population has, at one time or another, used self-inflicted physical injury as a means of coping with an overwhelming situation or feeling. ASHIC - the American Self-Harm Information Clearinghouse - strives to increase public awareness of the phenomenon of self-inflicted violence and the unique challenges faced by self-injurers and the people who care about them. Self-harm scares people. The behavior can be disturbing and difficult to understand, and it is often treated in a simplistic or sensational manner by the press. As a result, friends and loved ones of people who self-injure often feel frightened, isolated, and helpless. Sometimes they resort to demands or ultimatums as a way of trying to regain some control over the situation, only to see things deteriorate further. The first step toward coping with self-injurious behavior is education: bringing reliable information about who self-injures, why they do it, and how they can learn to stop to people who self-injure and to their friends, loved ones, and medical caregivers. ASHIC was founded to meet this need for honest, accurate information. No left-side menu? Go

Self-injury: a quick guide to the basics
If the whole concept of a disorder in which people deliberately inflict physical harm on themselves confuses you, or if you've been doing this for a while and never realized that it's recognized as a valid psychological problem all by itself, then this page is a good place to start learning about self-injury.
What self-injury is and isn't
It's not self-injury if your primary purpose is:
  • sexual pleasure
  • body decoration
  • spiritual enlightenment via ritual
  • fitting in or being cool
ASHIC is mostly concerned with episodic and repetitive self-harm: people learn that hurting themselves brings them relief from some kinds of distress and eventually turn to it as a primary coping mechanism. Calling it self-mutilation often angers people who self-injure. Other terms (self-inflicted violence, self-harm, self-injury) don't speak to motivation. They simply describe the behavior. "Self-mutilation" implies falsely that the primary intent is to mark or maim the body, and in most cases this isn't so.
Why does self-injury make some people feel better?

What's on my mind
March 20, 2004: Okay, so it's been like four years, but I've finally mustered the confidence to come back and finish up this site. I guess I shouldn't say 'finish' because I actually plan to build it into something I can update on a regular basis. I haven't been here in awhile, and I was kind of shocked at how annoying all those ads were, so I'm gonna work on getting rid of those. Also, the corny 'something borrowed' theme has got to go. It was the brainchild of a few sleepless nights in a row, and while everything fit nicely into it, WHAT WAS I THINKING? I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A DIVORCE at the time! Geez! Anyways, after I finish 'cleaning up' the mess I left here when I ran away from the site, I plan to add an ongoing journal. It will probably be a trip back into the depths of anorexia, so don't read it it you aren't into that kind of thing. I just don't think I'm ready for 'recovery' whatever that is at this time. Some day, things may change. Sometime in early 2000: This is my first REAL website, real in the sense that I actually give a shit how it turns out. I have a few ideas about what I want it to contain, but my direction is fairly limited.

Mac users: please note that our site is optimized for the Safari browser Obsessive and compulsive behavior Self-injury Originally Published: December 19, 1997 / Updated on: August 29, 2003 Dear Alice, Like the person who wanted help for their friend who is a self-mutilator, I also have sought help. I have not found any support groups for that though. It is like an addiction, but one can't locate help like you can for example "A.A." How do self-mutilators find a support group if in fact any exist? I am in a PHP (Partial Hospital) for grief issues, and yes past sexual abuse issues. I also have a therapist, but nobody here really can answer. Can S.A.F.E. help? FLA Dear FLA, Alice supports you as you deal with your grief and sexual abuse issues. You also have been reaching out for help with your self-mutilation, also known as self-injury, self-harm, or self- abuse. Self-injurious behaviors can be symptoms of other issues, such as past emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse (as in your case). It's good to deal with these issues first in order to help you recover from self-injury. In your question, you mention S.A.F.E. Alice assumes you are referring to the Self-Abuse Finally Ends Alternatives Program located at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, Illinois. S.A.F.E. offers a variety of services for people who self-injure, including group and individual therapy, in- and out-patient treatment, and a partial, or day, hospital. S.A.F.E. also provides education and support for people who self-injure. In particular, you may be interested in their therapy groups. At the present time, S.A.F.E. may be the only center in the U.S. to offer therapy groups dealing specifically with self-injury.

There is a moment where her character cuts herself "and those cutting scenes were really, really difficult because when somebody does that, it's something that's really private which you do by yourself, and you're also at your most vulnerable point. So to do that in front of a lot of people is really difficult."

Self-injury among teens on the rise
Pat Shannahan/The Arizona Republic Elizabeth, 14, has 32 scars from self-injuries. 'Cutters' say mutilations help ease their internal pain Joelle Babula The Arizona Republic Apr. 26, 2004 12:00 AM Elizabeth carves into her flesh with knives when she's upset. She uses a box cutter to hack out profane words on her legs, or she sneaks a kitchen knife to slice her arms repeatedly. Sometimes, the Glendale teenager heats up an iron just to sear her skin. The 14-year-old, The Arizona Republic is withholding her identity, says the acts of cutting or burning her skin relieve tension and anxiety, especially after fighting with her parents or getting dumped by a boyfriend. She says the burns and cuts temporarily distract her from her problems and make her feel better. An increasing number of girls are cutting, burning or bruising their bodies to help cope with stress, Valley school nurses, counselors and doctors say, sparking a flurry of training sessions for guidance counselors and referrals to therapists.

Medical News Archive Self-Injury No Longer Rare Among Teens Cutting and Other Dangerous Acts Becoming New Cries for Help By Jennifer Warner WebMD Medical News Archive Reviewed By Brunilda Nazario, MD on Thursday, November 21, 2002 Nov. 21, 2002 For desperate teenagers overwhelmed with emotions that they cannot express, deliberate self-injury is becoming an increasingly popular and dangerous form of self-expression. A British study of nearly 6,000 students shows that over their lifetime, 13% of 15- and 16-year-olds have carried out an act of deliberate self-harm. Within the past year, an act of deliberate self-harm occurred in about 400 of the students. Only 50 students went to the hospital, which suggests that the problem may be even more widespread. American experts say those numbers aren't surprising, but until now there has been relatively little research on the issue. The study, which appears in the Nov. 23 issue of the

Helpful responses to self-injury
Short Term
  • Show that you see and care about the person in pain behind the self-injury.
    Show concern for the injuries themselves. Whatever 'front' she may put on, a person who has injured herself is usually deeply distressed, ashamed and vulnerable. You have an opportunity to offer compassion and respect - something different from what she may be used to receiving.
    Make it clear that self-injury is alright to talk about and can be understood. If you feel upset by the injuries it may be best to be honest about this, while being clear that you can deal with your own feelings and don't blame her for them.
    Convey your respect for the person's efforts to survive, even though this involves hurting herself. She has done the best she could.
    Acknowledge how frightening it may be to think of living without self-injury. Reassure the person that you will not try to 'steal' her way of coping. (Also reassure yourself you are not responsible for what she does to herself.)
  • Help the person make sense of her self-injury, e.g. ask when the self-injury started, and what was happening then. Explore how it has helped the person to survive in the past and now. Retrace with her the steps leading up to self-injury - the events, thoughts and feelings which lead to it.

What is self-injury?
'Self-injury' is any sort of self-harm which involves causing injuries or pain to your own body. It can take many forms. The most common form of self-injury is probably cutting. Usually these cuts are not deep, but sometimes they are. Women may also burn themselves, punch themselves or hit their bodies against something. Some people pick their skin, or pull out hair.

How common is self-injury?
Self-injury is far more common than most people think. All sorts of people self-injure. Often they carry on successful careers or look after families, and there is little outward sign that there is anything wrong. Self-injury seems to be more common among women. This is partly because men are more likely to express strong feelings - such as anger - outwardly. Many women who self-injure believe they are the only person who does this. Fear and shame may force women to keep self-injury secret for many years. This means that no-one knows how big the problem really is. Our experience shows that where it is acceptable to talk about it, many women will say that they have self-injured at some time.

133. Center For The Study Of Autism
There are two major sets of theories on why people engage in selfinjury physiologicaland social. self-injury acts as a release, and thus, lowers arousal.
Self-Injurious Behavior
Written by Stephen M. Edelson, Ph.D.
Center for the Study of Autism, Salem, Oregon
Self-injurious behavior often refers to any behavior that can cause tissue damage, such as bruises, redness, and open wounds. The most common forms of these behaviors include head-banging, hand-biting, and excessive scratching or rubbing. There are two major sets of theories on why people engage in self-injury physiological and social. Some of the physiological theories (and suggested treatments) are:
  • These behaviors release beta-endorphins in the person's brain, which in turn, provides the person with a form of internal pleasure (beta-endorphins are endogenous opiate-like substances in the brain). (Treatment: If a person is given naltrexone , a beta-endorphin inhibitor, self-injury may decrease.)
  • Sudden episodes of self-injury may be caused by sub-clinical seizures. Sub-clinical seizures are not typically associated with the characteristic behaviors of conventional seizures, but they are characterized by abnormal EEG patterns. (Treatment: The person should receive an extensive EEG to determine if the self-injury is associated with sub-clinical seizures.)
  • Head-banging or ear hitting may be caused by a middle ear infection. (Treatment: The person should be given an extensive ear examination.)

    A Self-Injury Website
    Welcome to A Healing Touch, a self-injury website. This site is designed as a reference point for members of our mail list, and others who self-injure, or know others who self injure. Self injury is the general term used to describe self-inflicted pain or injury on oneself. Most commonly this is in the form of cutting or burning, but there are many other forms of self-injury. Self injury is often linked to depression, and is - simply expressed - a coping mechanism. For many people, self injury (or self-mutilation) is not a widely recognized habit. This can make it extremely difficult to find the support and help that is so essential for self injurers. But there is help out there, and this site is designed to provide a little of that help, along with further links to on and offline resources... top home about me about self-injury ...
