Self-esteem, self-disgust and body experience relating to self-harm

sheffield hallam university, forensic psychology


The purpose of the research is to explore the difference between individuals who self-harm and individuals who do not self-harm in terms of self-esteem, self-disgust, and body experience. There is very little research relating to individuals in the general population who self-harm, and findings are often inconclusive. Therefore, your participation in the study will assist in further understanding this important area. If self-esteem, self-disgust, and body experience in relation to self-harm can be understood, then appropriate support measures can be put in place.
