<p>Abstract:</p> <p>Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) is the deliberate infliction of self-harm without suicidal intent. Studies have found that individuals who engage in NSSI engage in distraction coping strategies (e.g., participating in an hobby) more frequently and support seeking coping strategies (e.g., contacting a friend) less frequently than controls. NSSI research has been conducted with predominantly White samples and few have included racial-ethnic minority populations. The current study investigates if and to what extent adolescents who engage in NSSI endorse different coping strategies relative to their non-NSSI peers in a racial/ethnic diverse sample. We hypothesize that (1) participants who engage in NSSI use distraction coping strategies more often, and (2) participants who engage in NSSI use active coping strategies less often. NSSI predicted active coping above and beyond internalizing symptoms, F(1, 1500) = 6.26, p = .012, but did not predict distraction, F(1, 1500) = 2.01, p = .156; youth who engaged in NSSI showed less active coping. Results suggest that active coping is a particularly salient target for NSSI-focused treatment efforts.</p>
