Why Do I Hurt Myself by Susan Bowman
Recent research has shown that an average of eight percent of children as young as third graders are engaging in self-injuring behaviors. This book provides a first-of-its-kind, story-based tool for helping these young people.
Elisa, a sixth grader, has started purposely hurting herself. No one understands why she wants to do these things, not even her mother. When her self-injuring becomes more noticeable, a teacher takes her to speak with the school counselor. Elisa eventually is helped by the counselor and by a therapist, with her mother involved.
