dc.description.abstractThe last two decades have seen a growing body of research into and aware-ness of self-injury, culminating in nonsuicidal self-injury being included as a “condition for further study” in the DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Association 803). While there has been a concerted effort to better under-stand and de-stigmatise self-injury, many who engage in the behaviour continue to remain silent. Because of this, individuals who self-injure need to develop their own systems of self-care as they work towards finding more positive and sustainable coping mechanisms. Considering self-injurious behaviour can be “associated with a sense of urgency and craving” (American Psychiatric Association 804); writing may provide an immediate outlet to express the “negative emotions, such as tension, anxiety, and self-reproach” (American Psychiatric Association 804) that influence self-injury and concededly reveal patterns of problematic thinking that need to be addressed.
