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

    " 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. "

    " 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.
