A functional approach to the assessment of self-mutilative behavior.
Most adolescents engaged in SMB for automatic reinforcement, although a sizable portion endorsed social reinforcement functions as well, and the results supported the structural validity and reliability of the hypothesized functional model of SMB.

The authors concluded that the SITBI uniformly and comprehensively assesses a wide range of self-injury-related constructs and provides a new instrument that can be administered with relative ease in both research and clinical settings.
Prevalence, correlates, and treatment of lifetime suicidal behavior among adolescents: results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement.
Differences suggest that distinct prediction and prevention strategies are needed for ideation, plans among ideators, planned attempts, and unplanned attempts.
Risk Factors for Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors: A Meta-Analysis of 50 Years of Research
A meta-analysis of studies that have attempted to longitudinally predict a specific STB-related outcome suggests the need for a shift in focus from risk factors to machine learning-based risk algorithms.
Contextual features and behavioral functions of self-mutilation among adolescents.
Considering the functions of SMB clarified the relations between SMB and other clinical constructs reported in previous studies such as suicide attempts, posttraumatic stress, and social concerns and has direct implications for the assessment and treatment ofSMB.

Trends in suicide ideation, plans, gestures, and attempts in the United States, 1990-1992 to 2001-2003.
