Self Abuse, Injury, Cutting
Why Do People Engage In Self-Inflicted Violence? (Article, Printed November, 2000;  Excellent resource on self abuse) http://www.tpronline.org/articles.cfm?articleID=296
Self Abuse.Com  This site is a large list of links related to self-injury.  While the links are not annotated, they are grouped into "Coping Skills," "Newsgroups, Message Boards, Discussion Boards, Chat," Personal Stories," "General Self-Harm Information, Articles," and more.  Most of the links were active when we visited .  This would be a good starting point for learning more about self-injury.  
SAFE Alternatives:  (800)-Dontcut [800-366-8288]  SAFE (Self-Abuse Finally Ends) Alternatives is a treatment program, and there is little here for people seeking more online information about self-injury.  We are including it because it is the only toll-free phone number we've found for people looking for more information, who don't have web access.  
Self-Injury Information and Resources:  This is a personal web site created by a woman in the U.K.  She includes information on self-injury (including common myths and helpful ways to respond), methods for coping with the urge, alternatives she uses instead of self-injury, how to cope with flashbacks, tips about going with a self-injurer to the Emergency Room, and a list of other resources. http://www.selfinjury.freeserve.co.uk
Healthy Place: Self-Injury Community:  An online community for people seeking support, information, or friendship.  This site includes access to the "Self-Injury Community" e-mail mailing list, transcripts from online conferences, online journals of self-injurers, and access to The Healing Touch web site.
The Cutting Edge (PO Box 20819, Cleveland, OH  44120)  The Cutting Edge is a print newsletter for "women living with self-inflicted violence."  Published quarterly, The Cutting Edge is supported solely through donations.  It does not appear to have a web site.   Rutamaz@aol.com
Self-Injury: You are not the only one:  This is the self-injury web site most often referenced either on the web sites or in print media.  It includes a wealth of information from a quick primer for those who are unfamiliar with self-injury, to a self-help page for self-injurers who are feeling the impulse.  Upfront, this site warns that there is information here that may be a "trigger" for those who self-injure; those pages seem to be well identified.  Also included are a number of interactive areas including a chat room, a web board, and access to the Bodies Under Siege e-mail mailing list.  
Young People and Self-Harm:  From the National Children's Bureau (NCB) in the U.K. this site is unique because it has a large list of international  "Information Resources."  None of these resources appear to link off this page, but phone numbers, addresses, and an occasional e-mail address are listed.  An online form lets people add their own research/program/practice or other resource to the list.  Additionally, the NCB is involved in research on self-injury (ending in December 2000).  With any luck, results from this research will be posted on this site.    http://www.ncb.org.uk/projects/selfharm.htm
