Abstract [en]

This study tested the hypothesis of a positive relation between deliberate self-harm and poor self-image in adolescents and investigated the relation between substance abuse (drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol) and deliberate self-harm. One-hundred thirteen highschool students, aged predominantly 16–18 years, responded to the 16-item version of the Deliberate Self-Harm Inventory, the 36-item Structural Analysis of Social Behavior, and single questions about use of drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol. The results showed a positiverelation between deliberate self-harm and poor self-image, and between deliberate self-harm and cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption.These results imply that poor self-image and a large extent of substance use may be markers for identifying adolescents at risk for deliberate self-harm.
