This book provides an introduction to the topic of self-injury as it relates to teens and young adults. The information, guidance, and resources offered make it a valuable tool for anyone whose life has been impacted by self-injury.

Regardless of the form it takes, self-injury can leave lasting physical and emotional scars on both those who harm themselves and their friends and family. Part of Greenwood's Q&A Health Guides series, Self-Injury: Your Questions Answered provides clear, concise information for readers interested in or struggling with this often-misunderstood subject. It explores the causes and consequences of self-injury, treatment options that make use of therapy and medication, and the role that popular culture and the media have in shaping our understanding of these behaviors.

Each book in this series follows a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readers' needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrates key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. The book also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the Internet-important skills that contribute to a lifetime of healthy decision-making.
