The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating pathways of emotional regulators in relation to self-conscious negative emotions, including non-suicidal self-harm, guilt, shame, shyness, and internal hostility, further examining the gender difference in the mechanisms. The study subjects of were 652 college students from three universities in J district. Self-report questionnaires on self-harm, self-conscious negative emotions, and emotional control were administered to them. An analysis performed using model 4 of the process macro indicated that self-conscious negative emotions had a significant correlation with self-harming behavior and that this correlation was mediated by the emotional regulation of brooding. These results suggest that negative self-conscious emotions have a significant influence on self-harming behaviors, and brooding reinforces negative emotions then the risk of self-harming behaviors is amplified.
