About the Course:
Self-injurious behaviour (SIB), including non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), poses a serious challenge to the ability of correctional institutions to provide a safe environment for offenders, as well as for institutional staff. Examples of self-injurious behavior include, but are not limited to, cutting, head banging, hair pulling, and ligature use. This literature review discusses what is currently known about SIB/NSSI and provides recommendations for intervention strategies in correctional institutions, as well as suggestions for future research.
