Congratulations go to CRFR Associate Researcher Amy Chandler. Her book ‘Self‐Injury, Medicine & Society’ is joint winner of the 2017 BSA Philip Abrams Memorial Prize.
Amy’s book shows that in order to understand self-injury, it is necessary to engage with widely circulating narratives about the nature of bodies, including that they are separate from, yet containers of ’emotion’. Using a sociological approach, the book examines what self-injury is, how it functions, and why someone might engage in it.
