The Recurrent Self-Harm Patient.
Barnes, Rosemary A.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v16 n4 p399-408 Win 1986
Compared 163 patients who were either first-time attempters or repeaters with a history of previous attempts. A six-month follow-up indicated four suicides in the repeaters' group and none in the first cases' group. Repeaters appeared to be much more dependent than first cases on professional care and to present a high short-term risk for suicide. (Author/NB)
