MEDIA REVIEWS

"This clearly written and well-referenced book presents state-of-the-art practical information on the assessment and treatment of self-injury in multiple settings. The superb use of case histories and examples of treatment make it an indispensable resource for therapists, teachers, and others who are called upon to deal with self-injurers. Highly recommended!"--Armando Favazza, MD, author of Bodies Under Siege

"The second edition of Treating Self-Injury is the most up-to-date and clinically useful resource on this extremely important public health problem. Walsh and his collaborators are clinical experts who are also versed in the research literature. From topics like the 'choking game' to self-injury in correctional settings to family approaches and beyond, the book is absolutely essential for mental health professionals who treat any form of self-injury."--Thomas E. Joiner, PhD, The Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University

"Walsh combines extensive clinical expertise and knowledge about self-injury with an accessible writing style and careful attention to the latest research. It is clear that Walsh cares genuinely and deeply about the people he seeks to help. Treating Self-Injury, SecondEdition, is one of the most important volumes on nonsuicidal self-injury. The book is distinguished by its practical and thoughtful guidance regarding the intricate, often messy clinical realities that treatment professionals encounter every day."--E. David Klonsky, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of British Columbia, Canada

"There are a number of books about understanding and treating self-injury. This is by far the best one. Walsh has been a pioneer in the field for decades, and this second edition expertly incorporates recent research advances and translates them into useful assessment and intervention practices. If I could have only one book to guide me in the treatment of self-injury, it would undoubtedly be this one."--Matthew K. Nock, PhD, Department of Psychology, Harvard University

"In this second edition, Walsh solidifies his status as one of the foremost experts in the treatment of self-injury. Combining a nonjudgmental and compassionate understanding of self-injury with practical strategies for treating this increasingly common behavior, this book is a 'must' for anyone who works with clients who self-injure."--Kim L. Gratz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, University of Mississippi Medical Center

"I described the first edition of this book as wise, thoughtful, and sound. Now I need to add 'brilliant' to reasonably describe the second edition. Not only has Walsh incorporated lessons learned from the explosion of research in this area, but he has also woven in the insights of additional well-chosen chapter authors. As the subtitle says, this is a practical guide--but beyond that, it is the definitive treatise on what is known and how to intervene in this most significant of pathologies, and an essential addition to every clinician's resources."--Alan L. Berman, PhD, ABPP, Executive Director, American Association of Suicidology

"Walsh has done it again! This is an incredible resource for those supporting individuals who self-injure--and the second edition is even more comprehensive. New content includes updates on psychosocial and pharmacological interventions, which inform clinicians on the most effective supports; a stepped-care model of service delivery that offers targeted strategies to address each client's unique needs; and chapters on issues unique to various treatment settings. I recommend this practical guide to working professionals as well as students preparing to enter the mental health field."--Melissa M. Pearrow, PhD, School Psychology Program Director, University of Massachusetts Boston
