dc.description.abstractThe present paper reports on a total of 309 incidents of self-harm recorded between October 2004 and September 2007, for a group of male patients deemed to be dangerous and severely personality disordered (DSPD), within the Peaks Unit at Rampton high security hospital. The first part of this paper describes self-harm within this group of patients, to see whether, as well as posing danger to the public, these patients also pose a risk of harm to themselves. Second, the paper investigated the antecedents of the self-harm incidents recorded. Finally, statistical analyses were conducted to assess the relationships between self-harm and patient/environmental characteristics. No significant differences were found between those who self-harmed and those that did not, although some differences were found within the self-harming group. Implications for future research and treatment are discussed.
