Association between internet searches related to suicide/self-harm and adolescent suicide death in South Korea in 2016-2020: Secondary data analysis

Objective: This study aims to determine the association between the internet search volumes […]

Self-injury

People have engaged in self-injury—defined as direct and deliberate bodily harm in the absence of suicidal intent—for thousands of years; however, systematic research on this behavior has been lacking. Recent theoretical and empirical work on self-injury has significantly advanced the understanding of this perplexing behavior. Self-injury is most prevalent among adolescents and young adults, typically […]

Psychological models of suicide.

Suicidal behavior is highly complex and multifaceted.

The present work presents an overview and critical discussion of the most influential theoretical models of the psychological mechanisms underlying the development of suicidal behavior. All […]

Factors associated with current versus lifetime self-injury among high school and college students.

We sought to identify factors associated with current versus lifetime nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) and factors that show consonant and distinct relationships with current NSSI for adolescents and young adults. Data came from a population-based survey of high school students (n = 9,985) and a national survey of college students (n = 7,801). Among both samples, […]

Deliberate self-harm(and attempted suicide).

The lifetime prevalence of deliberate self-harm is about 3% to 5% of the population in Europe and the USA, and has been increasing. Familial, biological, and psychosocial factors may contribute. Risks are higher in women and young adults, people who are socially isolated or deprived, and people with psychiatric or personality disorders. METHODS AND OUTCOMES:We […]

Adolescents’ self-reported suicide attempts, self-harm thoughts and their correlates across 17 European countries.

Suicide is a leading cause of death among adolescents in Europe. Self-harm thoughts and behaviours are documented precursors of completed suicide. It is therefore of great importance to investigate the prevalence of suicide thoughts and attempts and their correlates, with the aim of preventing this major life-threatening public health problem. This study provides cross-national European […]

Why alternative teenagers self-harm: Exploring the link between non-suicidal self-injury, attempted suicide and adolescent identity.

The term Ôself-harmÕ encompasses both attempted suicide and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). Specific adolescent subpopulations such as ethnic or sexual minorities, and more controversially, those who identify as ÔAlternativeÕ (Goth, Emo) have been proposed as being more likely to self-harm, while other groups such as ÔJocksÕ are linked with protective coping behaviours (for example exercise). NSSI […]

The DiaS trial: Dialectical behavior therapy versus collaborative assessment and management of suicidality on self-harm in patients with a recent suicide attempt and borderline personality disorder traits: Study protocol for a randomized controlled t

In Denmark 8,000 to 10,000 people will attempt suicide each year. The Centre of Excellence in Suicide Prevention in the Capital Region of Denmark is treating patients with suicidal behavior, and a recent survey has shown that 30% of the patients are suffering from borderline personality disorder. The majority of patients (70% to 75%) with […]

Photographs of self-injury: Production and reception in a group of self-injurers.

Photographs of self-injury (SI) on the Internet, according to the literature and the wider media, spread and encourage self-destructive behaviour, although very little is known about these effects. Photographs of self-injuries were described as one resource of a SI community culture. Informants often emphasised that the outcome of watching these photos varies due to individual […]

Alcohol use and psychiatric comorbid disorders predict deliberate self-harm behaviour and other suicidality among depressed adolescent outpatients in 1-year follow-up.

Detection and effective treatment of continuing mood disorder, comorbid disorders and alcohol use may significantly improve clinician’s ability to identify adolescent outpatients at high risk of subsequent DSH and other suicidal behaviour. Treatment interventions should aim at full recovery of depression.

The present paper discusses the accounts of their self-hurting given by a sample of 25 UK adults who had not been in contact with health or other services for this reason. The analysis focused on three value issues: the positive gains which motivated research participants to self-hurt; their own active efforts to mitigate associated risks; […]

Adolescent self-cutting elsewhere than on the arms reveals more serious psychiatric symptoms.

We conclude that self-cutting adolescents, mostly girls, with wounds elsewhere than on the arms present with the most serious psychiatric symptoms. It is important to perform a careful physical examination when an adolescent has unexplained wounds or scars on the arms or on other parts of the body. These adolescents also need a caring and […]
