Results showed that physical abuse by parents was a major risk factor that accounted for high rates of HCB. Perceived positive school experience and social support were protective factors associated with low rates of HCB. These two protective factors also buffered the adverse influence of abuse on the practice of individual HCB. In particular, parental abuse was associated with sexual experimentation, non-fatal self-harm, and suicide behaviors only at low levels of protective factors. © The Author(s) 2010.||Source Title:||Journal of Health Psychology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/49920||ISSN:||13591053||DOI:||10.1177/1359105310384297|
