"Self-injury, Mobile technology as therapeutic accessory";
The Cornell Research Program on Self-Injury and Recovery,
There is no denying that smartphones are the mobile companions in today´s fast-paced and ever-changing environment, especially with younger generations. Smartphone Mobile Applications ("Apps") on these phones are available for people who suffer from depression, anxiety, eating disorders or pain (see, for instance, [2-3]). Until recently, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) remained largely unrepresented in this trend. In this information brief, we present an overview of different Mobile Apps that can be used to support people with self-injurious behavior in addition to traditional therapeutic approaches.
