This module accompanies the preceding module, Psychosocial management of self-harm: Part 1, in which the evidence for interventions to reduce the repetition of self-harm is reviewed.
The following two clinical vignettes introduce us to two patients presenting with a history of self-harm and their entrance into psychosocial therapies to reduce the repetition of these behaviours.
We follow them into the early stages of therapy, accompanying the vignettes with self-test questions, to illustrate the approaches taken in manual-assisted cognitive-behavioural therapy (MACT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT).
These clinical vignettes complement the theoretical framework and evidence base outlined in Psychosocial management of self-harm: Part 1 and illustrate the use of psychosocial interventions in practice.
