In this comprehensive guide, Dr. D'Onofrio approaches the topic of how first-responders, such as teachers, coaches, social workers, guidance counselors, and campus health counselors, can and do treat adolescent self-injury. The topics include: a broad conceptual framework of Self-Injurious Behavior in order to increase awareness of the socio-cultural, emotional, psychological, and behavioral expressions of the phenomenon; specific practical guidelines for school counselors and other potential first-line responders for identifying, assessing, and triaging adolescents who self-injure; and, instructions on how to enlist assistance from teachers, administrators, and parents so that all elements of the student's support network function collaboratively are presented.

"A useful introduction for those who work with youth who participate in self-injurious behaviors.The mental health practitioner will perhaps most appreciate the practical section distinguishing between those who engage in suicidal behaviors and those who engage in self-injurious behaviors.Serves as a foundation to understand why individuals may self-injure and as a reminder that the most important healing aspect is the therapeutic relationship with the healer.Recommended as an introductory guide for the seasoned health-care professional who welcomes working with this challenging population." --PsycCRITIQUES
The number of students who self-injure has indeed grown exponentially. The phenomenon is rapidly becoming one of the most common problems school psychologists must deal with.Donofrio has written a wide-ranging book on the concept, etiologies, and approaches to the accurate diagnosis, understanding, and effective treatment of self-injury..He presents research findings regarding etiologies and treatment approaches in a remarkably jargon-free manner.Extremely useful.Donofrio presents excellent information.After mastering the relevant materials in this book, the school psychologist can be the first person to really hear the students pain and respond effectively, humanely, and competently. -- Communique
"In summary, the growing problem of adolescent self-injury is one that school psychologists and other school-based professionals are facing in increasing numbers. To date, however, there are few texts available on adolescent self-injury, especially those directed specifically to school personnel. Adolescent Self-Injury: A Comprehensive Guide for Counselors and Health Care Professionals provides a most welcome and useful addition to the professional literature. The text is well-written and provides practical, evidence-based information that should prove highly useful to school psychologists and other professionals responding to and working with adolescents who engage in self-injury." -- School Psychology Quarterly
