GARCIA PRADO, Gonzalo  and  BOIRA SARTO, Santiago. Using video prompting to teach how to put the jacket on to students with intellectual disability. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp.92-100. ISSN 1989-3809.

The incidence of self-injury in teenagers is an issue which is of growing concern, due to its consequences and wide outreach. When analyzing groups of adolescents that show specific signs of vulnerability within a context of isolation, it can be observed how self-harming behaviors are more manifest and adaptable to the situation at hand. In this article we look into a very particular cohort which is rarely researched, with the intend of identifying specific variables within this cohort which helps to predict said behaviors. The result show that self-harming episodes are more numerous than what the international literature shows, and that the actors of such behavior have a background involving drug use, mental handicaps and violent crime.

Keywords : Juvenile offenders; Prison; Judicial Decisions; Self-harm; Therapeutic use.
