Self-Mutilation and Art Therapy: Violent Creation
by Diana Milia

Theoretical ideas expressed here, writes the art-therapist author, "are based on the view of self-mutilation as a form of healing, or attempted healing, through violent or self-destructive means." Milia addresses the harming/healing process in sacrificial rituals designed to heal society; in rites of self-purification, healing, and maturity; and in performance art. Her principal argument is that art intervention (mostly with children and adolescents) supports the self-mutilating person's preference for ritualized symbolic action, their need to create transitional objects, and their desire for self- or body-control. Milia includes case studies, examples from her own clinical experience with children and adolescents, and analyses of art therapy sessions.
