Product Overview

Parents, teachers, friends, and even many clinicians are both horrified and mystified upon discovering teenagers who intentionally cut, burn, and otherwise inflict pain upon themselves. Despite the medical issues that often accompany cutting and other forms of self-injury, cutting is increasingly prevalent among today's youth. As many as 1 in 100 adolescents report cutting themselves, representing a growing epidemic of scarred and tormented youths, as we see in this revealing work. In this book, Plante features the stories of self-injurers and helps readers understand this troubling trend, the meaning of the injuries, and how to help teens with their struggles. The author, a psychologist, a parent, and a Stanford University Medical School faculty member, explains in clear detail how cutters and the adults who love them can heal the pain and stop self-injury.
