Cornell Research Program on Self-Injurious Behavior in Adolescents and Young Adults
The Cornell Research Program on Self-Injurious Behavior has multiple components and is aimed at establishing the prevalence of Self-Injurious Behavior in non-clinical samples of young adults and adolescents and applying developmental, public health, and social contagion frameworks to understand the behavior and its causes. Our work is also intended to explore the relationship of SIB to other mental health conditions (suicide and eating disorders, for example) and to shed light on contextual conditions that increase and reduce the likelihood that young people will engage in self-injurious behaviors.
