A Concept Analysis of Self-Silencing

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Self-silencing describes the phenomenon of “loss of voice.” A clear and comprehensive definition of self-silencing is relevant for nursing research and practice to promote a better understanding of detrimental health outcomes that may result from self-silencing. This concept analysis used a modified version of Walker & Avant’s method to identify attributes, antecedents, and consequences of self-silencing. Self-silencing has psychological and sociocultural dimensions that may result in negative health consequences. Directions for research, practice, and policy are included.
