Please take my 5 min survey

Hi anyone who follows me, I’m taking a public health class at a community college and researching cutting. If you have ever cut, could you please take this quick 13 question survey? http://kwiksurveys.com/app/rendersurvey.asp?sid=m3bpilmmk6q1b70229623&refer=t%2Eco If you know someone who has, could you pass it onto them?This survey is only intended to be answered by people who have cut themselves at one point in their lives. Thank you! #cutting #NSSI #survey #nonsuicidal self-injury #anonymous #self-reporting #cut

Quote
"Both devaluation and disruption/ erosion of community involve some form of “loss”. Among teens who turn violent, we have found that their lives tend to be besieged by losses and, most notably, by the dehumanization of loss…Repeated experiences of unacknowledged and unmourned loss contribute to the dehumanization of loss that is a precursor to violence. It’s one thing to lose something that was important to you, but it is far worse when no one in your universe recognizes that you have lost it. The failure to acknowledge another’s loss is to deny that person’s humanity. Hence, when loss remains unacknowledged, we refer to this as the dehumanization of loss, which is the mega-loss. When adolescents, especially those of color, are besieged with unacknowledged, unmourned, and therefore unhealed losses, they are suffering from the dehumanization of loss."

— Teens who Hurt, Kenneth Hardy and Tracey Laszloffy, p 28

"CeaseFire’s founder, Gary Slutkin, is an epidemiologist and a physician who for 10 years battled infectious diseases in Africa. He says that violence directly mimics infections like tuberculosis and AIDS, and so, he suggests, the treatment ought to mimic the regimen applied to these diseases: go after the most infected, and stop the infection at its source. “For violence, we’re trying to interrupt the next event, the next transmission, the next violent activity,” Slutkin told me recently. “And the violent activity predicts the next violent activity like H.I.V. predicts the next H.I.V. and TB predicts the next TB.” Slutkin wants to shift how we think about violence from a moral issue (good and bad people) to a public health one (healthful and unhealthful behavior)."
