Who is Steven Levenkron?

Steven Levenkron is a psychotherapist and writer known for his research into anorexia nervosa and self-injury. He now lives and still continues his practice in New York.

Levenkron started his research in 1970 and later took part in the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. At first, he gained the popularity due to his 1978 novel The Best Little Girl in the World, which was recognized as a Best Books for Young Adults by the American Library Association and later became a base of the American Broadcasting Company's television film The Best Little Girl in the World.

His notable clients included Karen Carpenter, who died in 1983.

In 1998, W. W. Norton & Company published Levenkron's non-fiction book Cutting, Understanding and Overcoming Self-Mutilation. In the book, he insisted that self-injury was not related to suicide in essentials.

His book The Luckiest Girl in the World is the original work of the 2000 television movie Secret Cutting, produced by USA Network.
