House-Elves & Self-Hatred were a series of books that presumably dealt with the habit house-elves have of punishing themselves when they fail to live up to their masters' expectations. The series had at least eight volumes[1][2][3] and could be purchased at Flourish and Blotts.[4]

There was an old copy of the first volume of House-Elves & Self-Hatred on a shelf at Borgin and Burkes, presumably for sale.[5]
