Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It happens whenever a person deliberately and repeatedly cuts or burn themselves, or purposefully hurts themselves in some other way. It's disturbing and dangerous behavior, and so hard to stop that many researchers consider it a kind of addiction. This is the first book written for the victims of self-inflicted violence and the first to teach them what they can do to stop hurting themselves. The Scarred Soul explores the reasons behind the impulse to self-inflicted harm and shows readers how to examine its impact on their lives and take steps to overcome the psychological traps that lead to self-inflicted pain.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

f-inflicted violence. Written for the victims of this addiction--and for mental health professionals--"The Scarred Soul" explores the reasons behind this behavior and shows how to overcome the psychological traps that lead to self-destructive acts. Illustrations and charts.
