Impulsivity has been proposed as an important construct in nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI). Yet, research on the relationship of impulsivity to NSSI has been mixed. The present study clarified this relationship using a multifaceted measure of impulsivity (i.e., UPPS Impulsive Behavior Scale), and a computer-based behavioral measure of inhibitory control (i.e., a stop-signal task). Participants were 82 confirmed self-injurers and 86 controls recruited from a college population. Self-injurers and…

Impulsivity and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury: Examining the Role of Affect Manipulation

The assessment of impulsivity is complicated by the construct’s multi-faceted nature and poor correspondence between self-report and behavioral measures. These complications extend to populations

Impulsivity in Non-Suicidal Self-Injurious Adolescents in China

Impulsivity has been proposed as an important risk factor in Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI). Yet, research outcomes on the relationship of impulsivity to NSSI have been mixed. The present study

Nonsuicidal self-injury: relationship to behavioral and self-rating measures of impulsivity and self-aggression.

Support is provided for the notion that a multi-modal approach to assessing self-injurious behavior is important for better understanding the correlates of nonsuicidalSelf-injury by revealing that self-rated impulsivity was associated with both self-report and behavioral measures of self- inJurious behavior.

Rethinking impulsivity in suicide.

Future research should continue to distinguish impulsivity-related traits that Predict suicide ideation from those that predict suicide attempts, and models of suicide risk should be revised accordingly.

Impulsivity and Response Latency in Non-Suicidal Self-Injury: The Role of Negative Urgency in Emotion Regulation

Higher scores on self-report measures of impulsivity, but not behavioral response latency measures, are associated with emotion regulation processes in individuals who self-injure.

A comparison of nonsuicidal self-injury in individuals with and without Borderline Personality Disorder

The aim of the investigation was to examine differences in the motivational, psychophysiological, psychological and cognitive responses to nonsuicidal selfinjury (NSSI) and other impulsive

Nonsuicidal self-injury as an affect-regulation strategy and the moderating role of impulsivity.

Nonsuicidal self-injury was associated with decreases in affective arousal, but impulsivity moderated other affective changes, and impulsivity traits influenced the success or failure of the NSSI affect-regulation process.

A functional approach to the assessment of self-mutilative behavior.

Most adolescents engaged in SMB for automatic reinforcement, although a sizable portion endorsed social reinforcement functions as well, and the results supported the structural validity and reliability of the hypothesized functional model of SMB.

The current study attempts to clarify the multi‐faceted nature of impulsivity through the use of the four‐factor UPPS Impulsive Behaviour scale. In order to build the nomological network surrounding

Toward a Conceptualization of Impulsivity: Components across the Behavioral and Self-Report Domains.

From the analysis of the corresponding scales, a second-order model revealed three broad impulsivity factors: Spontaneous, Not Persistent, and Carefree, which were discussed for establishing a coherent conceptualization and measurement strategy of impulsivity based, for example, on this derived second- order structure.

This study examines characteristics (i.e., prevalence, method, age of onset, frequency) of nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) and associated risk factors in a college student sample. Results revealed

Identifying clinically distinct subgroups of self-injurers among young adults: a latent class analysis.

A latent class analysis was utilized to identify clinically distinct subgroups of self-injurers, which were then compared on measures of depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and suicidality.

It is suggested that future researchers assess urgency, not lack of planning, when assessing impulsivity as a risk factor for bulimic symptoms, as well as the tendency to act rashly when experiencing negative affect.
