An Understanding of Self-Injury and Suicide
Styer, Denise M.
Prevention Researcher, v13 suppl p10-12 Dec 2006
Self-injury is intentionally injuring one's body without suicidal intent. However, self-injury is often confused with a suicide attempt. Drawing on her experience as a clinical coordinator at an in-patient program for youth who self-injure, the author provides a background on self-injury, then explores how self-injury differs from suicide and why they are often confused. (Contains 1 table.)
