Self-Mutilation (Opposing Viewpoints) (Library Binding)
Each year, 1 in 5 females and 1 in 7 males engage in self injury. This self injury is often a coping mechanism for far more serious issues. Enable your readers to engage in a necessary debate about this topic. The essays collected here are provided in a pro versus con sequence, so that readers can evaluate more than one side to every topic. Across four chapters, readers will examine whether self-mutilation is a serious problem, whether body modification falls within mutilation, what triggers self-mutilation, and what should be done to reduce self-mutilating behavior. Essay sources include Teen Vogue, LifeSIGNS, and the Cornell University Family Life Development Center.
