Self-injury is one of our society's fastest-growing and most disturbing epidemics. Experts estimate more than three million Americans are afflicted with this syndrome, which compels people to mutilate their skin or break their own bones. And, although recent media attention has grown, there is little information available on the subject. Cutting continues to be a widely misunderstood and dangerously mistreated psychiatric disorder. Bodily Harm is the most authoritative examination of this alarming syndrome and the first to offer a comprehensive treatment regimen. Written by the directors of S.A.F.E. (Self Abuse Finally Ends) Alternatives, it clearly defines what cutting is and explains the kinds of emotional trauma that can lead to self-mutilation. It also includes case studies, diaries, and success stories from a diverse group of patients. Most importantly, Bodily Harm offers a course of treatment based on years of experience and extensive clinical research -- as well as compassion, advice, and hope for the afflicted and their loved ones.
