Deliberate self-harm in children: the nurse’s therapeutic style

Deliberate self-harm in children: the nurse’s therapeutic style
Deliberate self-harm in children: the nurse’s therapeutic style
This article examines child health nursing skills in the management of deliberate self-harm in children and young people. In order for education to be effective (i.e. so that it changes practice) it must address the belief systems of the practitioner. It is suggested that such belief systems are embedded in collectively held tribal stories. The more challenging the patient’s behaviour, the more powerful the influence of the tribal narrative — possibly as a defensive strategy. The authors outline strategies aimed at increasing the range and depth of the therapeutic response to episodes of self-harm, and outline nursing interventions in the management of self-harming children.

Abstract

This article examines child health nursing skills in the management of deliberate self-harm in children and young people. In order for education to be effective (i.e. so that it changes practice) it must address the belief systems of the practitioner. It is suggested that such belief systems are embedded in collectively held tribal stories. The more challenging the patient’s behaviour, the more powerful the influence of the tribal narrative — possibly as a defensive strategy. The authors outline strategies aimed at increasing the range and depth of the therapeutic response to episodes of self-harm, and outline nursing interventions in the management of self-harming children.
