Listener Opinions

    " This is an amazing book. A must read for anyone who might work with someone who self-harms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beatrix Minkov | 2/18/2014

    " Een van de betere boeken over zelfbeschadiging, de achterliggende motieven, prognose, behandelsuggesties en inzicht in het algehele proces. Een aanrader voor professionals die zich meer in dit fenomeen willen verdiepen, alsmede voor de lotgenoten zelf, naasten en overige geinteresseerden. "

    " I picked this up at the library after being rather disappointed with A Bright Red Scream. Cutting is a much less sensationalized book on the issue, and one that I think is a lot more useful for those who would seek to understand the issue more thoroughly. The subtitle of the book makes it sound like a self-help book for people who cut or otherwise self-mutilate, but it really reads more like something written for concerned friends and parents, or for therapists who are just beginning to understand the issue. I think it would be helpful for patients, as well, but more in an "understanding the roots of the disorder" kind of way than in a "how to stop doing it" sort of way. Overall, it was better than A Bright Red Scream, but it still left me unsatisfied; a lot of the book was taken up with Levenkron describing how he handled specific cases, and it occasionally comes off as somewhat self-congratulatory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Wilby | 2/15/2014

    " The book provides a general overview via case examples of some of the motivating factors behind those who self-harm as well as guidelines around how to best address and support those who engage in self-harm. The information is accessible and easy to read, however the dialogue transcribed between client and therapist is too neatly packaged and the author presents himself as nauseatingly adept at quick fixes. The language he uses to pose questions to clients as young as 12, and the language of their response, make the case examples seem more fictitous than sincere. There are some decent insights into self-harm as a means of coping, releasing emotional pain, a means of expression, seeking support, relating to conditioned experiences by caretakers (etc) as well as normalizing and de-stigmatizing something many youth and adults engage in, so in that regard it is still a worthwhile read. "

    " A powerful and enlightening book. Painful, but cathartic, to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 2/9/2014

    " As a counseling student, I picked this up for extra credit and found i really couldn't put it down! I learned so much about cutting and why people do it. What helps and the journey to healing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiera Gardner | 2/4/2014

    " This book was great! The only thing I didn't particularly like about it was the author's reference to self injury as self mutilation. Most of us who self injure do not like to refer to ourselve as self mutilators. Other than that, I really learned a lot from this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob F | 1/22/2014

    " A good book for someone who wants to understand this behavior and how to help another person who is currently engaged in it. Some parts deal with accounts of self-inflicted wounds so be warned if you're sensitive to that type of material. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Belinda | 1/16/2014

    " This was the first information I ever found on self injury outside of the internet. It has proved useful over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 12/14/2013

    " There was a lot of useful information in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 12/13/2013

    " Considering the subject matter, I kinda liked this book. It was a little dull at points but I enjoyed that the author added examples with his patients. It was interesting and informative. Good read if you want some information on self-mutilation for yourself or someone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Len Egan | 12/9/2013

    " Great information and case studies for an introduction to self-mutilation. I am a high school counselor and found this book very helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rebecca | 12/9/2013

    " working with several clients who engaged in self-mutilation - this text provided some insight into this struggle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grant Talabay | 11/24/2013

    " This book covers the seemingly insane notion of cutting. It breaks the practice down simply so that the lay person can understand it. Highly recommend if you know someone who self mutilates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 11/24/2013

    " Another informative book about self-harm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/13/2013

    " This is good for people who want to understand mental illness. It can be graphic and daunting, but a must read for those going into the counseling field (BRIE). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/29/2013

    " I read this book when I worked at an adolescent residential facility. It's not a pleasant read by conventional standards, but it leaves you with an understanding about why people self-harm and how to help/react to the person engaging in this behavior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayla | 7/7/2013

    " This book was wonderful. I've never had a book tell me so much about myself or my life. Thank you, Steven Levenkron. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cord | 6/8/2013

    " learned more about myself than i probably wanted to know "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Scheppelman | 5/28/2013

    " I'm into psychology...this book sounded really interesting. And no, I'm not a cutter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 3/10/2013

    " My counseling supervisor recommended I read this book when I started seeing clients dealing with this issue. Although the book is difficult to read because of the subject matter, I think it is important for any mental health professional to read it. The case studies are particularly helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 2/26/2013

    " Good overview of the intricacies of self-harm. The author provides helpful case examples and clear suggestions for those who self harm, parents, and therapists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lmcelebre | 12/17/2012

    " A good book for clinicians who are seeking to understand this type of behavior and learn ways to treat it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 12/5/2012

    " I read this book many moons ago and found it both interesting and educational. It's one of those books that says "Hey, you're not the only one" when you read it and that's a comforting thing for people who need to feel that way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rabbit | 11/28/2012

    " Very informative, but I had to skip the personal story section, since I found it triggering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 11/18/2012

    " A gut-wrenching book but helpful and hopeful for helping those who deal with this challenge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 8/26/2012

    " One of the best books on self harm that I've come across. Informative and helpful in learning how to deal with others that suffer with it. "
