Self-injurious behaviors are commonly interpreted as “manipulative” or “attention seeking,” and the patients manifesting these behaviors are considered to be recalcitrant and unmanageable (Rayner & Warner, 2003). Medical professionals frequently report finding it difficult to connect to these patients on a human level. They, instead, divert their focus to patching up the wounds and sending the individual home. They report feeling helpless, ambivalent, and frustrated in dealing with these difficult-to-understand individuals (McAllister, Creedy, Moyle, & Ferrugia, 2002) and often become resentful at feeling “emotionally blackmailed” by them (Conterio & Lader, 1998).
