Item Description...
Provides a psychological profile of the self-mutilator, describes the circumstances under which the problem arises, and suggests possible treatments

Publishers Description
Nearly a decade ago, Cutting boldly addressed a traumatic psychological disorder now affecting as many as two million Americans and one in fifty adolescents. More than that, it revealed self-mutilation as a comprehensible, treatable disorder, no longer to be evaded by the public and neglected by professionals. Using copious examples from his practice, Steven Levenkron traces the factors that predispose a personality to self-mutilation: genetics, family experience, childhood trauma, and parental behavior. Written for sufferers, parents, friends, and therapists, Cutting explains why the disorder manifests in self-harming behaviors and describes how patients can be helped.

Self Injury  Feb 19, 2007
This is an excellent look into self injury. Why it happens and how to heal.
A Fine Overview.   Jan 8, 2007
I've known a lot of individuals who engaged in self-mutilating behaviors over the years but this is the first book that I've ever purchased specifically addressing the subject. In the past, I never delved too deeply into this particular area of mental illness, but I'm glad I did because Dr. Levenkron provides a thorough explanation concerning all aspects of cutting including what it is, how to identify it, characteristics of those afflicted with it, why they do it, what feelings in the patient the act brings about, and, most importantly, the recommended methods of treatment. For me, that's about all you can ask for in an introductory text. Something else that added to its instructional value are the case study examples. The client summaries were textured but not so long as to distract from the general discussion. Overall, it was a well-planned and executed work.
A good insight on cutting  Nov 28, 2006
This book is about people who cut and has ways to help cutters overcome their addiction to cutting as a means of escape and find better alternatives to this destructive lifestyle.
Smelling Like Roses - Or Not  Jul 19, 2006
Levenkron approaches every patient he ever had with stern directness. While it's nice to have a no-nonsense attitude, he only includes patients with whom he's had success so that he comes out smelling like roses.

There is little solid implication that therapy is in development for self-harm, and it is irresponsible to present case history information with the idea that two pages per person (half of which is self-agrandizement) adequately expostulates their plights. This book, in my opinion, is a psychology disaster.

I urge people in therapy and also caregivers to take great care in diversifying research material beyond this book, but to read it anyway, if only to get a ground-idea about some of the twisted ideas and myths that float among therapists regarding the subject matter.
Cutting  May 23, 2006
I found this book right on about reasons for cutting and great insights into why, when, etc. adults cut themsleves. It is non-judgemental and is great for cutters and therapists and loved-ones to read if they really want to understand. It was the first time I ever felt like I wasn't totally alone with this horrible secret and the first time I felt like someone understood and wasn't judging me for it.
