Self-Injury: Notes for Concerned Others
Adapted from Secret Shame
by Robert Hsiung
November 9, 2002 Since you ask, most days I cannot remember.
I walk in my clothing, unmarked by that voyage.
Then the almost unnamable lust returns.
Anne Sexton If you cause physical harm to your body in order to deal with overwhelming feelings, know that you have nothing to be ashamed of. It's likely that you're keeping yourself alive and maintaining psychological integrity with the only tool you have right now. It's a crude and ultimately self-destructive tool, but it works; you get relief from the overwhelming pain/fear/anxiety in your life. The prospect of giving it up may be unthinkable, which makes sense; you may not realize that self-harm isn't the only or even best coping method around. For many people who self-injure, though, there comes a breakthrough moment when they realize that change is possible, that they can escape, that things can be different. They begin to believe that other tools do exist and begin figuring out which of these non-self-destructive ways of coping work for them. This site exists to help you come closer to that moment.

Self-injury, also called self-harm, self-abuse, self-damage, and in its most broad and extreme cases, self-mutilation, is the act of purposefully and compulsively damaging the self, usually the skin. While acts of self-injury may at times result in death, these are not suicide attempts. Acts of self-injury include the following types of behaviors: cutting, scratching, burning, head banging, and hitting yourself with a hammer.
While psychiatrists disagree as to whether self-injury is a diagnosis in it’s own right or a symptom of a disorder (such as borderline personality disorder), one thing is known, self-injurers suffer in silent shame and isolation. It is estimated that self-injurers comprise at least 1% of the population, with a higher proportion being female, and nearly half admitting to being victims of physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood. A significant number of self-mutilators also suffer from eating disorders, alcohol and/or substance abuse problems, personality disorders, and/or mood disorders. While each self-mutilator has a different story to tell, all share certain characteristics;
The self-harm behavior is recurrent.

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. Even if you are not located near them, you can contact their information line at

126. Self-Injury In Children By Leah Davies, M.Ed.
selfinjury means deliberately hurting yourself without the intent to commit Other names for self-injury are cutting, self-harm, and self-mutilation.

Self-Injury In Children
By Leah Davies, M.Ed.
Catherine's elementary school teacher noticed cuts on Catherine's arm and asked what had happened. Catherine responded that she had fallen off her bike into some thorns. The teacher did not think any more about it. But later, she noted that Catherine always wore long-sleeved shirts and long pants even when it was hot outside. When Catherine's sleeve was pulled up accidentally, her arm revealed severe scars. Her teacher sought help by conferring with the school counselor, who then met with Catherine.
In a calm manner, the counselor communicated understanding, empathy and caring for Catherine, thus establishing trust. The counselor asked questions to determine that the cuts were not physical child abuse by an older person, but self-inflicted. She avoided shaming Catherine by stating that she was not a bad person for hurting herself. When Catherine was unable to describe her behavior, the counselor asked if she could write down or draw what she does to herself when she is upset. The counselor's goal was to not criticize or coerce her into stopping because intimidation usually leads to increased self-hurting behavior, but to find the help she needed. Self-injury means deliberately hurting yourself without the intent to commit suicide. Other names for self-injury are cutting, self-harm, and self-mutilation. Most self-injurers feel ashamed of what they're doing and try to hide it from adults and friends. Since self-harm is done in private, it often goes undetected or is explained as being accidental.

Burn - The Cure If you Self Injure, you are not the only one! What is Self-Injury?
Self Injury (SI) is a coping mechanism, just like smoking cigarettes, alcoholism, drug abuse, overeating, anorexia, bulimia, over-exercising, etc. "Self-injury is a self-preservation technique for many cutters; the self-mutilation relieves anxiety and/or depersonalization symptoms which could lead to psychosis or suicide if not alleviated. Self-harm can be focusing, calming. It can give a person a feeling of control over their lives and their bodies which they have experienced no other way. People trying to help cutters should not try to take this coping mechanism away from the cutters without helping them first come to terms with things that trigger incidents and learning new, healthier coping mechanisms with which to replace the old ones." "For many self-injurers, self-mutilation seems the only appropriate response to the state of the world and to how they're feeling about it and about themselves. Many self-injurers are extremely intelligent, sensitive, and creative people who have a hypersensitivity to the world around them."

  • Self-Harm
by Sally Burningham Self-harm, sometimes referred to as 'self-injury', includes deliberately cutting, bruising or burning oneself, damaging skin, pulling out hair or taking an overdose.
Although incidents of self-harm are not fatal in themselves, they should be taken very seriously as they are usually a sign that the person is deeply distressed and needs a great deal of understanding and support. People who self-harm are at much greater risk of eventually committing suicide if they cannot find help to deal with their problems and very painful feelings. Self-harm is not only very upsetting for those who injure themselves. It is worrying for friends and family and for any professionals concerned. But the more information we have on why self-harm may occur and what appropriate steps we can take, the easier it may be for everyone to cope.
who self-harms?
Self-harm is far more common than generally supposed. This may be because many of those who self-harm are ashamed and try to keep it secret. However, hospital figures suggest that it is three to four times more common among women than men and more common among young adults. It is estimated that 2-3% of girls will make a serious attempt at self-harm at some time during their teenage years. The rate for men appears to be rising: between 1980 and 1998, self-harm among those aged 15-24 almost doubled and the rate for those aged 25-35 rose by 15%. During the same period, the rate in women has risen considerably less.

Health Information for Teens
Self-Injury: A Guide for Teens and Friends The teen years can be the most complicated time of your life. Some of the challenges that you may experience might include adjusting to harder school work, changes in relationships, and changes in your body. Sometimes it can be hard to handle all of the feelings that come with these changes while you're also trying to manage the normal ups and downs of teen life. Many teens are able to manage difficult feelings by talking to friends or a trusted adults or by doing things like writing in a journal, playing sports, or listening to music. Some teens, however, have a harder time balancing out their feelings and may turn to harmful activities like drinking, using drugs, or self-injury. This guide was created to help you understand self-injury, and how you or a friend can get help. What is self-injury? When a person causes harm to their body on purpose it is called "self-injury." Other names for self-injury are "cutting", "self-harm", or "self-mutilation." Some ways that people hurt themselves are by cutting, scratching, picking, and or burning their body. People who self-injure sometimes harm themselves repeatedly, and often have scars from where they have hurt themselves. They may not feel pain when they are hurting themselves, and might do more damage than they mean to. Self-injury is never a healthy way to cope with difficult feelings.

137. Understanding Self Mutilation
Information on selfinjury, helping yourself and others.
Home Understanding
It seems to be a common thought that people who deliberately scrape, cut, burn or otherwise harm their body, are either doing it to try and kill themselves, or doing it to get attention. This is rarely the case. This site is for those who want to understand.
What Is Self-Mutilation?
Self-mutilation is the deliberate damaging of body tissue, more often than not, without conscious intent to commit suicide. It has also been described as "self-harm", "self-injury", "auto-aggression", "delicate self-cutting", and a number of other terms. Little is known about self-mutilation and yet it is quite a common act of abuse. Most see it as "attention-seeking" or "manipulative" but it can be better described as the expression of an inner scream. Cutting the skin with razors, scalpels or broken bits of glass are the most commonly seen methods of self-mutilation, although other methods include burning, scratching, carving the skin, interfering with wounds, punching oneself (or punching walls), and also pressing objects (including needles) into the skin. Often the body's natural 'pain killers' will take over so that when a person harms themselves they frequently do not feel 'realistic' pain. This self-inflicted injury could be viewed as a symbolic way of expressing deep distress - a non verbal form of communication in which feelings are expressed through self-injurious actions, where they can be dealt with in a more visible way, yet because of its very visibility, self-mutilation is often treated with mistrust and prejudice.

She said that she had cut her arms and legs, explaining, "You have so much pain inside yourself that you try and hurt yourself on the outside because you want help." "Diana: Her True Story," a biography written on the princess said that Diana had thrown herself into a glass cabinet at Kensington palace at various times, slashed her wrists with a razor, and cut herself with the serrated edge of a lemon slicer....

Most cutters are women who have been emotionally, sexually or physically abused as children, but Marilee Strong's research shows that self-mutilation also appears in other groups. Though research is in its infancy, therapists say there are now promising treatments - from medication to intensive psychotherapy - for the millions of "cutters".
