Abstract

The authors regret that two items used to generate the anti-suicide and sensation-seeking subscales of the Inventory of Statements About Self-Injury (ISAS) were incorrectly coded. Specifically, an item corresponding to the anti-suicide subscale was erroneously coded as corresponding to the sensation-seeking subscale, and an item from the sensation-seeking subscale was erroneously coded as corresponding to the anti-suicide subscale. Correction of these coding errors resulted in a change to some of the reported findings. Specifically: 1. In Section 3.1, we initially reported a non-significant association between internal functions of NSSI and NSSI frequency. Following correction of the above-mentioned coding errors, there was a significant association between internal functions of NSSI and NSSI frequency (r =.07, d =.15, p =.03).2. In Section 3.2, we initially reported a significant association between changes in social functions of NSSI over time and age at first assessment (r =.09, d =.17, p =.049). Following correction of these coding errors, there was no longer a significant association between these constructs.3. In Section 3.3.1, we initially reported a significant association between changes in social functions of NSSI during treatment and age at admission to treatment (r =.09, d =.19, p =.01). Consistent with the prior analysis, correction of these coding errors resulted in a non-significant association between changes in social functions of NSSI during treatment and age at admission.4. In Table 2, we initially reported a non-significant effect of changes in the sensation-seeking subscale of the ISAS during treatment on changes in quality of life (r = -.07, d = -.15, p =.05). Correction of these coding errors resulted in a significant relationship between changes in the sensation-seeking function of NSSI during treatment and changes in quality of life (r = -.08, d = -.17, p =.03).The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
