Abstract

The moderating effects of depression on self-injurious behavior among personality-disordered individuals (N=40) were examined. Self-injurious behavior (SIB) was assessed using a well-validated laboratory measure. Remitted depression was associated with greater sensitivity to self-aggressive cues, indicating that remitted depression may be a risk factor for SIB. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
