The study aimed to assess the relationships between self-concept clarity, the ability for participants to identify a precipitant for self-harm, and the associated markers of severity of self-injury including methods used, physical state following self-harm, and necessity of medical intervention. Among other findings, individuals with poorer self-concept were more likely to engage in self-injury on a different day than the reported precipitating event and were more likely to have sought medical consultation following the self-injury.
