Invalidation during teen years increases risk of self-harm in young people
from Science World Report
Recent findings show that invalidation from a family member or peers can potentially determine whether or not a teenager may hurt themselves, based on a new study conducted by researchers at Brown University and Butler Hospital. For the study, researchers examined 99 hospitalized teens out of concern about suicide risk and found that that a high perception of family invalidation — or lack of acceptance — often predicted future suicide events among boys; this was also indicative of self harm, such as cutting behaviors, among teens in general.
