'This second edition of Cutting Down again offers structure and practicality to achieve the best outcomes for young people who self-harm and their families. In this accessible manual, the authors bring "order" to the management of self-harm which will give both therapist and patients confidence and direction. The overall stance is of positivity, normalisation, hope and collaboration, enhanced by the addition of a parent/carer module, a new hopelessness module and up to date techniques from third wave CBT, offers an accessible and evidenced based protocol to reduce and stop self-harm.' - Isobel Heyman, Professor, Honorary Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Psychological Medicine, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust.
