Cutting: Understanding and Overcoming Self-mutilation

by Steven Levenkron - £13.99  Norton (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780393319385 | ISBN 10: 0393319385

Cutting takes the reader through the psychological experience of the person who seeks relief from mental anguish in self-inflicted physical pain. Levenkron traces the components that predispose a personality to self-mutilation: genetics, family experience, childhood trauma and parental behaviour. Written for self-mutilators, family, friends and therapists, this book explains why the disorder manifests in self-harming behaviour, and describes how self-mutilators can be helped.
