Review 1 for Hope and Healing for Kids Who Cut: Learning to Understand and Help Those Who Self-Injure
Very informative with lots of suggestions.
Date:July 29, 2011
It was so nice to get some information regarding cutting written by a Christian. That doesn't seem to be an easy thing to do these days. I especially appreciated the hope the author gives in dealing with this heartbreaking issue.

Review 2 for Hope and Healing for Kids Who Cut: Learning to Understand and Help Those Who Self-Injure
Sensible Guide for Understanding Kids Who Cut
Date:October 18, 2010
I struggled with cutting for almost six years and have read a dozen books on the topic, but I still learned something new from this book! The information Marv gave on the developmental stages of adolescents was probably the most helpful section of the book for me; it made sense of why all the "issues" in my early childhood (child of divorce, part of a blended family, feelings of abandonment and rejection) that didn't seem to be a big deal as a kid came to a destructive head during adolescence.
Overall, Marv's book provides a balanced look at why people self-injure AND how to help them. It's a worthy contribution to the growing body of Christian literature on the subject.

As a high school Counselor this has been the best book I have seen in helping kids who struggle with self injury. Penner speaks to kids, parents and helpers. A very practical and insightful book to help all understand the what is behind the cutting.
