I am a graduate student in the psychology department working with Dr. Shawn Cahill, Ph.D at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  I am currently conducting a research study examining non-suicidal self injury and other coping behaviors individuals use in response to stressors.

Participation is completely voluntary.  This study is all online, so the survey may be completed at your convenience from any PC/Mac that has internet access. Responses are completely anonymous so that responses will not be linked to any personal or identifying information.

Study Information:

Study Title:   Coping Behaviors and Self Injury: An Internet Study

Study Description:  The purpose of this research study is to examine experiences related to certaincoping behaviors that some individuals experience in response to stressors. Approximately 600 people will be recruited to participate in this internet study through this and similar websites.  If you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey that will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.  The questions will ask about various coping behaviors, including instances of intentional injury that is not accompanied by a desire to commit suicide, and your experiences related to these behaviors. The survey will also ask questions about general health and mental health history, as well as personality variables such as questions regarding emotion regulation and impulsivity.

Finally, once again, participation in this study is completely voluntary and responses to the study’s survey are anonymous. This research hopes to learn more about individuals with non-suicidal self injury and other coping behaviors. Thank you for your participation and contribution to the research field.
