counterproductive

перевод counterproductive как "контрпродуктивный"не очень хорош. Часто можно сказать просто "вредный" или "...иметь пагубные последствия"

Some have called this a vogue word, and others term it a cliché, but it’s still useful in the right places. Its primary sense, “bringing about a result the very opposite of the one intended,” is explicit and appears to have no exact synonym. But if you mean only “unfortunate,” “bad,” “self-defeating,” or “troublesome,” use one of those terms, and save counterproductive for its explicit niche. (Kenneth G. Wilson "The Columbia Guide to Standard American English")

Spanking is counterproductive and dangerous - Телесные наказания детей опасны и ничего кроме вреда не приносят.

Censoring pornography is counterproductive - Борьба с порнографией: результат обратен ожиданиям (или просто "ведет к обратному результату").
