Growing incidence of nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) and a lack of intensive examination of NSSI variability among adolescents justify identification of latent classes based on the endorsement of different NSSI behaviors. Latent class analysis was used to detect the heterogeneity of past month NSSI among 322 high school students (73.2% female). Two...

Research on dispositional authenticity has accelerated in recent years. Using the Authenticity Scale and drawing upon Self-Determination Theory, we conducted a Latent Profile Analysis to determine whether two or more distinct classes of authentic self-development were identifiable across separate samples (Ns = 344 and 378) of emerging adults (18–22...

Background and objectives: The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many aspects of daily life, but relatively little is known about COVID-19-related stress for subgroups in the population. We examined differences in COVID-stress and depression as a function of gender, race, ethnicity, and subjective social status. We tested these factors as moderators...

... Furthermore, this study identi ed three interpretable phenotypes of SH by using LCA, which includes low SH (57.8%) exhibiting low SH features, medium SH (29.0%) with a medium level of banging or hitting oneself, and high SH (13.2%) reporting severe engagement in a multitude of SH behaviors. Although the labels have varied somewhat, the ndings are consistent with previous LCA studies; the largest number of participants was concentrated in the "experimental SH" or "low/moderate SH" subgroups (between 21% and 73%), whereas the smallest concentrations occurred in the "multiple functions/anxious" or the "high/severe SH" subgroups (approximately 10% of who engaged in self-injury) [29]. Therefore, identifying early adolescents who engage in SH and tailoring effective early interventions to prevent transitioning from low/medium SH to high SH is imperative given the alarming increase in the prevalence of these behaviors during a developmentally sensitive phase of life. ...
