posted on 2007-01-01, 00:00 authored by Anita. Govindan
The relationship between predisposing risk factors and precipitating life events of individuals presenting to an emergency department with Deliberate Self-Harm was investigated. Poor mental health and childhood abuse were related to suicide intent, only individuals' perceptions regarding their current life events were directly associated with lethality of the self-harm act. The portfolio illustrates the issues inherent in the treatment and management of schizophrenia and the potential of CBT in addressing symptoms and sequelae of acute psychosis. Four case studies are presented.
