Adolescents in Alternative Subgroup and Self Harm (NSSI) -punk, goth and hard rockers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Självskadebeteende är en komplicerad företeelse som förekommer vanligast under tonårstiden. Tidigare litteratur har kunnat se en koppling mellan självskada och identifikation med vissa subgrupper såsom goth, punk och hårdrockare. Dessa personer självskadar i högre utsträckning än personer som anser sig själva tillhöra någon annan subgrupp. För att utöka kunskapen om denna länk mellan självskada och identifikation med alternativa subgrupper var studiens syfte att undersöka om identifiering med alternativa subgrupper hade samband med självskada utöver den väldokumenterade effekten av depression. Studien byggde på befintliga longitudinella data från en forskningsmiljö vid Örebro Universitet där 1478 högstadieelever följdes över ett års tid. Resultatet visade att det fanns tydliga effekter av identifikation med subgrupper tillsammans med och utöver depressiva symtom vad gäller prediktion av självskada. Kön visade sig vid kontroll av studiens övriga variabler inte påverka resultatet. Studien kom fram till att ungdomar som visar högre nivåer av både identifikation med subgrupper och depressiva symtom visar högre nivåer av självskada än någon av företeelserna separat.

Abstract [en]

Self-harming is a complicated phenomenon that is most common during adolescence. Previous literature has seen a connection between self-harm and specific subcultures such as goth, punk and hardrock that shows that members in these groups self-harm in greater extent than persons that consider themselves members of other subgroups. This study therefore aims to broaden the field of knowledge regarding this increasing problem behavior. In order to do that we examined if identifying with alternative subcultures could show a connection with self-harm, above and beyond that of the far well-documented predictor, depressive symptoms. The study was based on previous data collection that involved 1478 junior high school students that were measured over a time period of one year. The results showed that there were important effects of subculture identification not only above and beyond that of depression but also in interaction regarding influencing and predicting self-harm. Controlling for gender differences showed that it did not affect the outcome in self-harm. The study showed that adolescents that display higher levels of subculture identification and depressive symptoms show higher levels of self-harm then any of the phenomena separate.
