Abstract

The moderating effects of depression on self-injurious behavior among personality-disordered individuals (N = 40) were examined. Self-injurious behavior (SIB) was assessed using a well-validated laboratory measure. Remitted depression was associated with greater sensitivity to self-aggressive cues, indicating that remitted depression may be a risk factor for SIB.
