dc.description.abstractNurses in schools, hospitals, prisons and community settings come into contact with children and young people who harm themselves. This chapter explores some of the myths and realities about self-harm and uses an evidence-based framework to guide nurses and other professionals who are required to assess, treat and support children in both front-line services and residential settings. Self-harm is heterogeneous, which means that it signifies different things in different people. Current evidence for the assessment of self-harm and clinical interventions are discussed. The development of mental health nursing in relation to self-harm is also described. Case vignettes are used to illustrate the different ways in which self-harm is understood and how a variety of nursing interventions can be used to meet young people's needs.
