Non-Suicidal Self-Injury: A state of the art perspective

This special issue, published in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health, presents several state of the art reviews among with one original paper on the current issue of Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) in adolescents. Since there is a proposal to include a Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Syndrome in the upcoming DSM 5, we asked several clinicians and researchers in the field of NSSI to provide us with an overview in their respective field of expertise. We are able to present reviews about the prevalence of NSSI, the relationship between NSSI and suicidality (which is also supported by an original paper, submitted separately, which we decided to include in this issue), issues around NSSI and the Internet, as well as a review about psychotherapeutic approaches. We are proud to present to the reader an international perspective with authors from several countries.
