More About Cutting by Steven Levenkron
 
 
 
Overview
The author of the seminal and groundbreaking Treating and Overcoming Anorexia Nervosa now explains the phenomena of self mutilation, a disorder that affects as many as two million Americans. 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.
