Adolescents who self-harm represent a significant challenge to professionals, with around 1 in 10 young people thought to be engaging in self-harming behaviour. As self-harm is not a diagnosis in itself, to be effective the doctor is required to conduct a thorough assessment and to formulate a psychosocial management plan that will include the mitigation of risk. In this podcast, Dr Alison Wood, Dr Gemma Trainor and Dr Justine Rothwell talk to CPD Online Trainee Editor Dr Jennifer Powell about the ways to approach the assessment and treatment of young people who self-harm.
