Why Do I Hurt Myself?

By Susan Bowman and Karen Dean

Recent research has shown that an average of 8% of children as young as 8 years old are engaging in self-injuring behaviours. This book provides a first-of-its-kind, story-based tool for helping these young people.

Elisa, 11 years old, 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 counsellor. Elisa eventually is helped by the counsellor and by a therapist, with her mother involved. With support, Elisa learns about self-injury and how to use more healthy ways to deal with her sad feelings and “negative thinking."

Included is Elisa’s story, discussion questions, tips for parents, and the following 8 hands-on activities:

  • My Butterfly
  • Self-Alarm
  • Comfort Kit
  • My Feelings Wall
  • Hope Floats
  • I Am Able
  • Healthy Coping Chart
  • Re-Frame
Age Suitability: 8-12
