A most helpful book
Date:October 18, 2010
Inside a Cutter's Mind helped me understand the physical, psychological, and spiritual factors involved in self harming. I have used it in a Christian counseling context to help young women who are cutting themselves. They have benefited greatly from understanding the many complicated reasons underlying their actions. They are learning to surrender their urges to harm themselves to God as a result of the author's sensitivity to the complex nature of their struggles. These women would not have benefited from a "spiritualization" of their problem even though they know there is a significant spiritual factor involved. Instead they benefited from Jerusha Clark's honesty concerning the physical and psychological components while at the same time emphasizing the need to surrender the affliction to God for healing. In addition to helping these young women who are self injuring, the book is a welcomed informative tool for the families and friends of these women. It has helped them to relate to their loved ones rather than running away or turning a blind eye to the problem because they do not understand it.
