Product description


"Self-destructive behaviors of all kinds can confuse even the therapists involved with such clients, bringing out the desire to force them to stop. Fortunately, Lisa Ferentz’s original book helped reverse that trend, and this well-written and well-researched second edition goes even further in providing a non-pathologized and empowering understanding approach to these behaviors."

Richard Schwartz, PhD, faculty member at Harvard Medical School.

"In this new edition of Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors, Lisa Ferentz offers solid support to clinicians, using a solution- and strengths-focused approach to treating challenging trauma-based behaviors. She offers useful and effective links between this book and Letting Go of Self-Destructive Behaviors, her workbook for clients, and together these two books give both clinicians and clients a dynamic and effective way to collaborate throughout the healing process. Lisa’s emphasis on self-compassion is an essential element of healing into wholeness and I appreciate her deep understanding of its central place in the healing process―for both clinicians and clients."

Nancy J. Napier, LMFT, author of Getting Through the Day: Strategies for Adults Hurt As Children and Recreating Your Self: Building Self-Esteem Through Imaging and Self-Hypnosis

"In the second edition of Treating Self-Destructive Behavior, Lisa Ferentz again sets the gold standard for books on this topic. Replacing pathologizing models with a compassionate, neuroscientifically informed approach, she offers a treatment paradigm that integrates cutting-edge approaches to trauma with down-to-earth, practical interventions that are attentive to risk management yet also relational and validating."

Janina Fisher, PhD, coauthor of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment and Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors
