Clinical Associations of Deliberate Self-Injury and Its Impact on the Outcome of Community-Based and Long-Term Inpatient Treatment for Personality Disorder
The poor outcome of the inpatient DSI group suggests that explicit protocols for the management of DSI in inpatient settings may be beneficial and that the clinical indications for long-term inpatient treatment for severe and non-severe PD may require updating. Expand


Child-Adolescent Suicidal Potential Index (CASPI): a screen for risk for early onset suicidal behavior.
A reliable and valid self-report questionnaire, the Child-Adolescent Suicidal Potential Index (CASPI), to screen for risk for suicidal behavior in children and adolescents and positively correlated with symptom severity of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Expand
A Brief Screening Measure of Adolescent Risk Behavior
Analysis of the factor structure and reliability of a brief but comprehensive measure, the adolescent risk inventory (ARI), suggest that the ARI can be useful in quickly identifying the broad range of risk behaviors found among adolescents with psychiatric disorders. Expand
Self-Injurious Thoughts and Behaviors Interview: development, reliability, and validity in an adolescent sample.

Three assessment tools for deliberate self-harm and suicide behavior: evaluation and psychopathological correlates.
The two questionnaire adaptations are reliable and valid self-report scales for the assessment of self-harm and past suicidal behavior and support the hypotheses of a higher degree of psychiatric symptomatology in patients with self- Harm behavior compared to those without. Expand
Development and Initial Validation of the Self-Harm Behavior Questionnaire
Preliminary analyses indicate this new questionnaire is both valid and reliable when used with young adults drawn from a nonclinical population. Expand
The Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R):Validation with Clinical and Nonclinical Samples
Examination of the reliability and validity of a brief self-report measure of past suicidal behavior, the Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R), found that the most useful cutoff scores on the SBQ- R were 7 for nonsuicidal samples, and 8 for clinical samples. Expand
Non-suicidal self-injury among adolescents: Diagnostic correlates and relation to suicide attempts
The findings demonstrate the diagnostic heterogeneity of adolescents engaging in NSSI, highlight the significant overlap between N SSI and suicide attempts, and provide a point of departure for future research aimed at elucidating the relations between non-suicidal and suicidal self-injury. Expand
