Understanding Family Functioning after Youth Self-injury Disclosure #87
Title: Understanding Family Functioning after Youth Self-injury Disclosure
Description: The goal of this study is to help researchers understand what helps or hinders families’ wellbeing as they navigate the discovery of a youth's non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI; direct and deliberate damage of one’s body tissue without suicidal intent). Your participation in this study will provide valuable knowledge that can help with the creation of family-based resources on responding to youth self-injury. Parents and youth will complete an online screening survey. Eligible parents and youth will complete separate Zoom interviews with a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow in clinical psychology, or Dr. Turner. Parents and youth will then complete online surveys every 2 weeks for 12 weeks. Responses will be confidential, unless you or someone else is at risk of imminent harm. All participants will be given a list of mental health resources.
Specifics: Study Population:
Youth (aged 13-17) and their legal guardian must both willing to participate. Both must live in Canada, be able to complete interviews and surveys in English, and have Internet access. Parents have learned of youths' self-injury in the past 6 weeks.
Total time commitment will be 6-7 hours per participant over 14 weeks. Zoom interview and online self-report surveys for each participant. Parents and youth can decline to answer any question(s) they prefer not to answer.
