85 young women who harmed themselves were compared with 93 young women without a history of deliberate self-harm across a broad range of cognitive emotion regulation strategies. Significant group differences were found for all measures even when depression severity was controlled for. In addition, logistic regression analyses showed that both cognitive content strategies & cognitive process strategies made significant independent contributions to the prediction of group membership. Controlling for depression severity, suicidal cognitions & nonacceptance of emotional responses independently predicted deliberate self-harm. (46 refs.)
