My study will employ a convergent mixed methods two-arm parallel randomized controlled design. The qualitative strand will primarily rely on semi-structured interview procedures to answer the following questions: (1) How do adolescents perceive and experience the phenomenon of nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI)? (2) What do adolescents believe needs to be done to address NSSI? The quantitative strand will primarily rely on clinical interview data, self-report measures, and an experimental task protocol to answer the following question: What is the impact of a brief mindfulness induction (versus a control condition) on self-injury attentional bias among self-injuring adolescents?


Inclusion Criteria: - To be included in the study, a participant must be: 1) at least 12 years old and no more than 18 years old, 2) able to understand and communicate in English, 3) willing and able to participate in all study procedures, and 4) currently engaging in nonsuicidal self-injury OR have a history of nonsuicidal self-injury. Exclusion Criteria: - Individuals will be excluded from the study if they are experiencing a suicidal crisis at the time of the study procedures (e.g., they endorse suicidal ideation, planning, and intent as determined by the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview 7.0) and require crisis intervention or hospitalization.
