Abstract

Background:

The present study was conducted to examine the quality of life and changes in behaviour for a cohort of 49 people with intellectual disabilities and SIB who were all part of a previous total population study conducted in the south of England by <link rid="b36">Oliver, Murphy and Corbett (1987). Assessment tools used in the original study, and an additional quality of life measure, the Life Experience Checklist (<link rid="b1">Ager, 1990), were carried out with informants in the participant's homes or places of day activity.

Results:

The results of the study add to the growing evidence of extreme chronicity for SIB and the relative lack of impact of treatment for people in whom self-injury has become well-established. They imply that early intervention is essential if such behaviour is to be eliminated long term.
