Summary: Like most addictions, this one starts as a way of coping with emotional pain. But cutting--the habit of self-injury on the rise among teenagers, especially girls--is a sign of deep-seated anxiety and self-hatred that no one can cope with alone. This video examines the distressing, ritualized behavior and explores how parents, friends, guidance counselors, and those who cut themselves can work together to stop it. The program goes inside a support group for young women struggling with the habit, showing them engaging in group discussions, self-expression exercises, and role-play that helps them let go of negative emotions and confront the 'demon' of addiction--Container.
