|Abstract: ||This study evaluated the contribution of psychological pain to self-harming
behaviours, controlling for several co-variables. A convenience sample of 207 U.S. residents
provided socio-demographic and clinical information and responded to the Psychache Scale.
Logistic regression analysis demonstrated that when controlling for the significant co-variables
of drug use and having a psychiatric diagnosis, psychological pain provided a significant contribution in predicting self-harming behaviours. Psychological pain also correlated with the frequency
of self-harming behaviours, controlling for significant co-variables. We conclude that, when clinicians collect life history and assess relevant risk factors for self-harming behaviours, it is also
important to assess psychological pain|
