Surveys estimate that between 4.6% and 13% of the population in the UK engaged in self harm (Meltzer et al, 2002; Hawton et al., 2002). Studies have generally indicated that anxiety, depression and childhood traumas are predictive of deliberate self harm (DSH). Furthermore, studies generally support the view that the functions of impulsive forms of DSH are related to avoiding or escaping aversive motions. Based on such findings, the experiential avoidance model (Chapman et al. 2006) suggests that DSH is used as a way to disrupt unwanted thoughts, feelings or memories. This study investigated the effect of processes of worry and rumination in elation to DSH.
