Males with Non-suicidal Self-Injury and Eating Disorder: A Unique Approach
Although in general population research, the variable gender has been considered in many studies, in mental disorders NSSI has basically been studied in female patients and more in those individuals with comorbid Axis II disorders (Nitkowski & Petermann, 2011). In ED literature, males have frequently been neglected due to low prevalence rates (Núñez-Navarro et al., 2012; Claes et al., 2012).
