PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine the association of bullying perpetration and victimization to non-suicidal self-harm and suicidal ideation among 93 boys from residential programs. Parental warmth was also examined as a moderator in these associations.Design/methodology/approachParticipants completed questionnaires on their bullying involvement, parental warmth, non-suicidal self-harm, and suicidal ideation.FindingsThe findings revealed that bullying perpetration and victimization were both associated positively with non-suicidal self-harm and suicidal ideation, while parental warmth was related negatively to non-suicidal self-harm and suicidal ideation. In addition, the association between victimization and non-suicidal self-harm was stronger at lower levels of parental warmth, while these patterns were weaker at higher levels of parental warmth. Similar patterns were found for victimization and suicidal ideation.Originality/valueThe results indicate the significance of examining non-suicidal self-harm and suicidal ideation in relation to bullying involvement among adolescents from residential programs as well as the important role of parents in mitigating the negative effects associated with bullying perpetration and victimization.
