A Literature Review of Deliberate Self-Harm
Jacqueline Mangnall and Eleanor Yurkovich,
PURPOSE. Despite agreement across disciplines regarding the significance of deliberate self-harm (DSH), there continues to be a lack of consensus regarding what DSH is and is not. The purpose of this literature review was to determine the current state of understanding of this complex phenomenon.
CONCLUSIONS. There remains a problem of definitional ambiguity regarding DSH, and a definition derived from the literature is offered. Using Rodger’s framework for the evolutionary approach to concept analysis, the attributes, antecedents, and consequences of DSH are developed.
PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS. Therapeutic approaches that are based on open-minded, non-judgmental listening and on harm minimization rather than abstinence may be more effective than current treatment approaches that forbid any form of DSH
