Self-Harm through Cutting: Evidence from a Sample of Schools in the North of England
Hall, Brian; Elliott, Joe; Place, Maurice
Pastoral Care in Education, v28 n1 p33-43 Mar 2010
This project explored the prevalence of self-harm by cutting in a geographically circumscribed area of the North of England, using a school-based survey. Twenty-three per cent of the young people reported they had cut themselves at least once, with no major changes evident at different age groups or with gender. There were clear differences in rates between schools, and statistically significant differences when comparing the coping mechanisms used by young people who cut themselves with those of their peers. (Contains 4 tables.)
