Wisely, Julie; Hare, Dougal Julian; Fernandez-Ford, Luisa
Journal of Learning Disabilities (United Kingdom), v6 n1 p61-71 Mar 2002
Among findings of a survey of the prevalence and nature of self-injurious behavior in people with learning difficulties living in northwest England, the hypothesis that self-injury sites on the body may overlap with acupuncture sites associated with analgesic effects was supported. Implications for treatment of self-injurious behaviors are addressed. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
