Editorial Reviews


In addition to its broad appeal to educators, this book will also be of great interest to all people interested in educational issues-students, parents, and administrators. It should join Professor Berman's other books as foundational texts for those educators who. wish to help students to mature in literary proficiency and their own emotional growth.

(Marvin Krims, M.D., lecturer in psychiatry, Harvard Medical School)

A sensitive and, at times, gripping discussion of an issue not discussed in educational literature.... The book is personal, written with sensitivity and a great deal of hope that thinking and writing about self-destructive behaviors in educational settings allow for catharsis and self-insight.

(Deborah Britzman, author of Novel Education: Psychoanalytic Studies of Learning and Not Learning)

Format: Hardcover
This book is well-written and an interesting mix of first-hand experience and clinical research. The voices of the two authors complement eachother nicely. I am a fan of Berman and I think his choice to co-author with Hatch Wallace was wise. Highly recommeded for cutters or those interested in cutting from a psychological or educational perspective.
