Abstract

We used a qualitative method and performed telephone interviews with seven different persons at BUP in different municipalities who work with self-harm behaviour. As a help to understand and analyze the material we have used the attachment theory and the concept of acting space. The result shows that there is a problem in defining self-harm behaviour which also often is combined with an eating-disorder, depression or anxiety. According to the interviewed, adolescents with self-harm behaviour often have problems with relations or a trauma causing the self-harm behaviour. Different methods are used to treat self-harm behaviour at the different clinics but even within the same clinic the methods vary. Within the studied clinics they seem to rely much of their own experience instead of research of treatment for self-harm behaviour. (Less)
