Coping Behaviors, Abuse History, and Counseling: Differentiating College Students Who Self-Injure
Wester, Kelly L.; Trepal, Heather C.
Journal of College Counseling, v13 n2 p141-154 Fall 2010
Nonsuicidal self-injury is an important concern that has received limited attention. In this study, the authors explored several factors differentiating three student groups: never self injured, self-injured in the past, and currently self-injure. Among the factors investigated, results showed that currently self-injuring students were younger, less likely to use problem focused coping behaviors, and substantially more likely to be in counseling. College counseling implications, effect sizes, and limitations are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
