CRPSIB at International Society for the Study of Self-Injury Annual Meeting

The Cornell Research Program on Self-Injurious Behaviors in Adolescents and Young Adults (CRPSIB) was well-represented at this year’s annual meeting of the International Society for the Study of Self-Injury, with one presentation and three posters presented. The presentation, titled “Parent Experiences of Child Self-Injury: Key Processes and Events,” focused on preliminary findings from a current exploratory interview study in which self-injurious young people and their parent(s) are asked about recovery from self-injury and parental roles in the recovery processes. The poster titled “Reaching Out: The Role of Disclosure and Support in Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Cessation” described analyses of qualitative and quantitative data regarding self-injury disclosure to and support from important others and the impact of these on a person’s ability to stop self-injuring. These data come from a large survey, administered to eight colleges across the country. Also pulling from this dataset, the poster “The Ethics of Self-Report Surveys: Assessing Non-Suicidal Self-Injury and Other Sensitive Topics” examined responses of survey participants regarding the experience of taking the survey itself. Finally, the poster “Validity and Reliability of the Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Assessment Tool (NSSI-AT): Why Use the NSSI-AT?” presented support for the use of the NSSI-AT, a survey tool developed by the authors. For more information on these presentations and other work of the CRPSIB, see the project’s publications webpage and the general website.
