Article publication date: 1 March 2000
This paper provides a review of the language used to describe suicidal and self‐injurious behaviours in prisons. The effects of such linguistic practices on the treatment of suicidal prisoners are critically evaluated. The paper concludes with coverge of evidence‐based practice in the area of suicide and intentional self‐injury. A number of possible future developments are discussed.
