    It Really Helped Me

    This is a very well written and informative book, it combines facts with personal accounts which makes it all the more authoritative. The authors have alot of experience in the field which definetly shows in the book. Although this book contains much information about the SAFE program, it is helpful even if not intrested in that program. As a recovering self injurer, this book has helped me greatly in understanding and trying to control my behavior.

    awesome

    Okay, so I can't go to the S.A.F.E program, but reading this book is the next best thing. I read the whole thing in a short amount of time and I'm starting the program with my therapist. I really think this will actually help...wish me luck!
