Why Kids Cut – by Paul VanValin, Ph.D

Children, teens and young adults engage in self-harm behaviors, such as cutting, scratching and burning, in order to manage strong and intense emotions, gain a sense of control, and feel peace of mind.  Self-harm behaviors are habit-forming, physically destructive, and can lead to suicidal behaviors.  The path to recovery is in developing strong, caring relationships, avoiding secrets, seeking counseling, and learning new ways of calming oneself by drawing close to God.
