Detecting and predicting self-harm behaviour in prisoners: a prospective psychometric analysis of three instruments

Publication Summary

Background Research has revealed high levels of suicide and self-harm within young adult prisoners, but many studies have not considered the applicability and validity of its measurement for both male and female prisoners. Previous studies have focused on retrospective evaluations of instruments which are not useful evidence in informing clinical practice and decision making.
