Prospective Prediction of First Onset of Nonsuicidal Self-Injury in Adolescent Girls


Participants in the Adolescent Development of Emotion and Personality Traits (ADEPT) project at Stony Brook University who had not experienced NSSI at baseline (462 girls, mean age = 14.39 years, SD = 0.62 years) completed baseline measures of hypothesized risk factors related to problems with disinhibition and negative affectivity, including adolescent psychopathology, personality and clinical traits, and parental psychopathology. First onset of NSSI was monitored at 9-month intervals by in-person and telephone interviews over the next 36 months.
