SIB

Self-Injurious Behavior is self-inflicted bodily harm, such as bruises, redness, or cuts. The most common forms of SIB include head banging, hitting the face, biting the hand or arm, and excessive scratching or rubbing. SIB can range from mild to severe. A person who engages in SIB may be feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, seeking self-stimulation, or may be hypersensitive to certain sounds.
