Description

Currently, most adolescent self injurious behavior research is focused on adolescent White females, indicating that self-injury may be more prevalent among females and those of Caucasian decent (Whitlock, 2010). This session will present data from a current study indicating that perhaps males and other ethnic groups are also engaging in this destructive coping mechanism, perhaps in differing ways (self hitting and/or physically aggressive behaviors resulting in injury) than are being focused on by current conceptual and empirical works.
