People with severe self-harming behavior and histories of lengthy psychiatric inpatient admissions can represent a challenge to care providers. This interview-based study illuminates healthcare provider experiences (n = 12) of Brief Admission (BA) among self-harming individuals, with >180 days of psychiatric admission the previous year. Qualitative content analysis revealed that providers experienced benefits of increased predictability, and a shift from trigger and conflict to collaboration with individuals admitted to BA. Staff participants expressed an increased sense of safety and a strengthened link between inpatient and outpatient caregiving. Results indicated that BA is a promising intervention for self-harming individuals with extensive psychiatric histories.
