Papers on self injury

These papers are included because they shed some light on the issue of self injury. The inclusion of a paper here does not mean I agree with it!!

There is a file of two newspaper articles on self injury from early 2006 here

This list is growing! Last updated 26/1/2013. I'm trying to make this more comprehensive - email me if you become aware of any more things I could add.

If you haven't got the free Acrobat reader it can be downloaded from here. On the plus side it is a pretty robust download and I've never seen it go wrong, no matter how obsolete the computer is.
