Abstract "The Oxford Handbook of Nonsuicidal Self-Injury is a comprehensive and authoritative volume that brings together cutting-edge research and perspectives from leading experts in the field of self-injury. Handbook chapters explore diverse populations affected by NSSI, including adolescents, young adults, adults and marginalized communities, illuminating the unique challenges they face and the nuanced approaches required for effective support and intervention. In addition to laying out what is known and needed related to NSSI prevalence, risk factors, underlying mechanisms, it explores the role of technology and social media in NSSI, as well as its intersection with other mental health disorders. It concludes with a review of current and emerging evidence-based prevention, intervention, and therapeutic approaches. Each chapter provides valuable insights into the various facets of NSSI and offers a holistic understanding of its many nuanced dimensions. Contributors to this volume represent a diverse range of disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, social work, public health, and sociology, among others. Their collective expertise enhances the scope of this handbook, making it an indispensable resource for researchers, clinicians, and policymakers striving to address the challenges posed by NSSI. By synthesizing the latest advancements in research and clinical practice, the Oxford Handbook of Nonsuicidal Self-Injury not only offers a comprehensive overview but also serves as a catalyst for future research and intervention development, as well as informed clinical practice. In conclusion, this handbook serves as an invaluable resource for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers dedicated to advancing the field of NSSI research and promoting well-being among those affected by this challenging issue. With its wealth of diverse perspectives and scientific contributions, this volume stands as a testament to the collective efforts to understand, prevent, and address nonsuicidal self-injury"-- Provided by publisher.
