5.0 / 5Rating & Reviews
Understanding and Overcoming Self-Mutilation Cutting takes the reader through the psychological experience of the person who seeks relief from mental pain and anguish in self-inflicted physical pain. Steven Levenkron traces the components that predispose a personality to becoming a self-mutilator: genetics, family experience, childhood trauma, and parental behavior. Written for the self-mutilator, parents, friends, and therapists, Levenkron explains why the disorder manifests in self-harming behaviors and, most of all, describes how the self-mutilator can be helped.

Beautiful, insightful, and painfully relatable
Levenkron writes about his experiences working with patients who have engaged in self-mutilation. The portraits he paints of them, their behaviour, and his patients' explanations and reasons for their self-harm all hit close to home. I find myself reading and re-reading some of these passages because of how well they describe the feelings and reasons I have for self-harming too. I recommend this to anyone with a traumatic background and engages in self-destructive behaviour.
