Child Suicide And Self-injury

We examined the cognation between child maltreatment and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). Participants were 86 adolescents who consummated measures of child maltreatment, self-reprehension, perceived reproval, dejection, and NSSI. Analyses revealed consequential, minuscule-to-medium sodalities between concrete forms of child maltreatment (physical neglect, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse) and the presence of a recent history of NSSI. Emotional and sexual abuse had the most vigorous cognations with NSSI, and the data fortified a theoretical model in which self-reproval mediates the cognation between emotional abuse and engagement in NSSI. Specificity for the mediating role of self-reprehension was demonstrated by ruling out alternative mediation models. Taken together, these results denote that several different forms of childhood maltreatment are associated with NSSI and illuminate one mechanism through which maltreatment may be associated with NSSI. Co-occurring chronic physical and noetic conditions are associated with an incremented risk for self-harm and suicidal ideation that is akin to the jeopardy in chronic noetic conditions and with an endeavored suicide risk in excess of that soothsaid by the chronic noetic health conditions alone. Preventive interventions for these youth should be developed and evaluated.
