ADOLESCENTS’ NON-SUICIDAL SELF-INJURY

EPA 2019 Scientific Programme
When clinical concepts are being officially defined, clinicians need to become familiar with a lot of new information. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Section of the EPA will organise a symposium on Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI), a new individual diagnosis of DSM-5. It will therefore be interesting to learn more on this concept, such as its (1) links with suicide, its (2) risk factors, including life events, school type and ADHD, its psychopathology (3), with a focus on stress sensitivity in adolescents, and also the different (4) treatment possibilities. Gil Zalsman, Judit Balazs, Romuald Brunner and Lars Mehlum will be in charge of this interesting symposium.
