Recent research has shown that an average of 8% of children as young as 3rd graders are engaging in self-injuring behaviors. This book provides a first-of-its-kind, story-based tool for helping these young people.

Elisa, a sixth grader, 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 counselor. Elisa eventually is helped by the counselor 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, & 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

For ages 8 through 12.
