Abstract

Fathers play an important role in children’s development throughout their lives, and Father-Love Absence (FLA) leads to more behavioral problems, including Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI). However, there has been no research on the relationship between FLA and NSSI and its influencing mechanism. This study is based on Nock’s integrated theoretical model of NSSI, aiming to explore the influence of FLA on NSSI and further investigate the mechanism of Subjective Vitality (SV) and Forgiveness (FORG). This study recruited 1795 adolescents in central China to complete four scales, including Father-Love Absence Scale (FLAS), The Subjective Vitality Scale (SVS), The Tendency to Forgive Scale (TTF), and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury Scale. FLA can directly affect NSSI, and indirectly affect NSSI through three paths of “FLA→SV→NSSI, FLA→FORG→NSSI, FLA→SV→FORG→NSSI”. These results not only enrich our understanding of the relationship between FLA and NSSI and its internal mechanism but also provide theoretical and practical support for the reduction of NSSI in family education.
