Product Description

If you have ever purposely injured yourself, it may seem normal, even right. But if you haven't, it seems impossible to understand those who have. After all, don't living creatures avoid pain. Edward T. Welch writes this eye-opening and encouraging booklet assuming that you feel trapped in a cycle of self-injury or that you love someone who does. Welch helps loved ones to understand the self-injurer's world. And if you are the one who feels trapped by this behavior, he lovingly describes a cure that is more attractive than you think.

    As the very first Christian resource on self-injury, this booklet accomplished a lot: it brought the issue to light for Christians. As the first resource that could've set the standard and as a potential tool for healing, this booklet falls drastically short. The author writes from a biblical-counseling perspective (the perspective that thinks all the answers to all life's problems can be directly found within the pages of the Bible) and ignores decades of psychological research.

    While the booklet accurately assesses the reasons WHY people give for wanting to self-injure, it reduces their reasons to one: it's all about God. On some level, that may be true, but many things point directly to things in our past. Once we recognize what causes us to act in certain ways, only then can we begin utilizing God's help to overcome our faulty behaviors. And this help can come in many forms: Bible reading, medication, prayer, counseling, talking with family and friends, etc. Prayer and Bible reading are not, as the author suggests, the ONLY answer; they are a PART of the answer. For a different perspective in short, booklet form, see "Cutting: Self-Injury and Emotional Pain." Otherwise, see Jerusha Clark's "Inside a Cutter's Mind" or Jan Kern's "Scars That Wound, Scars That Heal."

    Just a short booklet, but by far the best thing I have read for Christians dealing with self-injury. I wish that Dr. Welch would write a full-length book on this subject, but this is still the best thing out there that I have found, and I've looked through a lot of stuff on cutting!

    This book gives a short but good understanding of why people self-injure and how we should approach God with our self-injuries.It gives understanding to self-injurers as it helps us understand why we have these desires and also helps us identify what emotions we have when we self injure.It is also good for an outsider to try and understand self-injury because it gives simple ideas from the Bible and from general life why self-injury is nessasary in peoples lives.
