Self-Injurious Behavior in Correctional and Noncorrectional Psychiatric Patients.
Hillbrand, Marc
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v19 n3-4 p95-102 1993
Examined prevalence and selected correlates of self-injurious behavior (SIB) among inmates (n=23) referred for treatment to maximum-security forensic hospital, non-SIB inmates (n=23), and noncorrections SIB patients (n=30). Found two distinct patterns of SIB: pattern consistent with conceptualization of SIB as expression of generalized behavioral dyscontrol (noncorrectional patients) and as attempt to manipulate correctional authorities (inmates).
