Exploring Self-Injury through a Relational Cultural Lens
Trepal, Heather C.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p492-499 Fall 2010
In this article, self-injurious behaviors are examined through the conceptual framework of relational cultural theory (RCT). As an emerging theoretical approach that takes into account the importance of relationships and relational goals, it is suggested that RCT be used in conjunction with mainstream approaches to treat self-injury.
