Cutting and Self Injury

Cutting and Self Injury can occur when there is a traumatic event in ones life such as physical, verbal or sexual abuse.  It also happens when one has low self worth, anxiety, depression or they do not have the proper coping skills to deal with emotions.  The intense emotions are relieved only by things such as cutting, pinching and burning themselves, pulling out hair or banging their head against a wall or other hard object.
