Access from EThOS:
The study used a qualitative approach to explore CAMHS professionals' experiences of carrying out self-harm assessments, including thinking about the relationship with young people in the assessments and whether clinicians' experiences of the work changes over time. Clinicians working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) undertake the work of assessing young people who attend hospital due to self-harm. These clinicians must make the decision about whether a young person can be safely discharged home, as well as thinking about their wider needs.
