    Rate this media item:

    • Two clearly written, well-organized titles. Self-Mutilation is an accessible volume that defines this self-destructive behavior and takes a look at the causes and physical and psychological effects. Emphasis is placed on self-help measures and available treatment. Brief, personal stories and profiles illustrate the author’s points. Scoliosis looks at the patterns of spinal curvature, treatment options, and emotional effects of this condition. From scientific explanations of Cobb angles (a measurement system designed to help classify spinal curves) and the Risser scale (to determine bone maturity) to firsthand descriptions of peer ridicule and feelings of embarrassment, this text fully explores the physical and emotional issues involved in the diagnosis and treatment of scoliosis. Pencil drawings include illustrations of the spine and the types of orthopedic braces patients wear. Both books give helpful, factual information while offering reassurance and hope.
