Content By: Beauchaine, T. P., Hinshaw, S. P., & Bridge, J. A. (2019). Nonsuicidal self-injury and suicidal behaviors in girls: The case for targeted prevention in preadolescence. Clinical Psychological Science, 7(4), 643-667.

Course Description: Rates of non-suicidal self-injury has steadily increased among girls in recent years, and suicide remains a leading cause of death among adolescent girls around the world. Existing literature highlights the importance of psychological and environmental risk factors as well as their neurobiological sequelae in conferring risk for suicide during the teenage years (ages 15-19). Extant literature underscores the importance for screening and prevention in preadolescence to capitalize on brain plasticity in order to potentially reverse childhood exposure to maltreatment, for example. Existing, effective interventions can be tailored for preadolescent girls with known risk factors for non-suicidal self-injury and suicide.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the relationship between non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior
  2. List one biological, one psychological, and one environmental risk factor for non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior in preadolescent girls.
  3. Identify one potential intervention strategy for preadolescent girls at risk for non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Nonsuicidal self-injury and suicidal behaviors in girls: The case for targeted prevention in preadolescence
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the risk factors for non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior and the relationship between non-suicidal self-injury and future suicide attempt
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand why preadolescence is an optimal developmental period for screening and intervention of non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior in girls.
