Select two risk factors for self-harming behavior. a. having high self-esteem b being a teenager or young adult c. being female d. having never abused drugs or alcohol i know its going to be something funny and i'm gonna feel dumb asking it but its for my final test of the semester
i would say the answer is b and c
A and B
The first major risk factor for self-harming behavior is that Being a teenager or young adult. Usually teens and young are quick to jump to conclusion because of social problems, hormonal changes and the impact of the society. The second risk factor is that being a female because females usually get carried away with emotions and females tend to overthink more than males.
B.Having a history of neglect or sexual or physical abuse
Being male because it is proven that males are more intend for self harm and suicide. And having a history of neglect or sexual or physical abuse because the person feels as if they are worthless or they are empty or full of sadness or depression.
i think the full question has a, b, c, and d and the answer is a and b
If it's any help, I can tell you that early signs of self-harming actions usually involve:
-Sudden mood swings
-Lack of motivation
-A depletion of desire for making contact with others
-And an overall negative attitude.
