Test improves prediction of self-injurious behavior

Test improves prediction of self-injurious behavior 
Through the use of the Implicit Association Test, researchers at Harvard have found a better way to predict self-injurious behavior. The test does not rely on the individual to articulate their actions, which improves risk assessment, because self-injuring individuals often do not report their behavior in order to avoid unwanted treatment.
