Editorial Reviews

VOYA - C.J. Bott
This review addresses several books in the "Instant Help Book for Teens" series. The first exercise in What's Eating You? is a three-page questionnaire to help teen looks at their eating behaviors. The activities that follow are structured, nonthreatening, self-probing, blame releasing, and hopeful. In Stopping the Pain, Shapiro explains that there are many misconceptions about cutting; for example, that teens who self-injure are just trying to get attention, are very sick people, or are crazy. In reality, most who self-injure do so as a way of coping with the trauma or pain in their lives. This workbook helps individuals look at their lives, find a path out of the pain, and create a path back to health. Coping with Cliques takes a different tone from the others workbooks in this series, as the author attempted to use teen slang that is already outdated and in doing so the problem of female-to-female harassment is trivialized. Other workbooks in this series include: Anxiety Workbook for Teens by Lisa M. Schab; Beyond the Blues by Lisa M. Schab; The Social Success Workbook for Teens by Barbara Cooper and Nancy Widdows; The Anger Workbook for Teens by Raychelle Cassada Lohmann; and The Divorce Workbook for Teens by Lisa M. Schab.

I bought this book for a friend who's son has this problem. Because this problem is reaching epidemic proportions there is a need for a book like this. I found the checklists easy to follow and oculd really apply to any type of self-destructive behavior that needed changing.
