(Duke University) Young people who self-harm are three times more likely to commit violent crime than those who do not, according to new research from the Center for Child and Family Policy at Duke University. The study also found young people who self-harm and commit violent crime -- 'dual harmers' -- are more likely to have a history of childhood maltreatment and lower self-control than those who self-harm only.
