Bodily Harm: The Breakthrough Healing Program for Self-Injurers


Two pioneers in the treatment of selfinjury problems offer a comprehensive look at this epidemic psychiatric disorder, in which people feel compelled to mutilate themselves, examining potential treatments, discussing case histories, and presenting success stories.


HARPERCOLL: Self-injury is one of our society’s fastest-growing and most disturbing epidemics. 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. 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.
