Social and Emotional Development of Gifted Students: The Role of Contagion in Suicidal Behavior among Students With Gifts and Talents
Cross, Tracy L.
Gifted Child Today, v39 n1 p63-66 Jan 2016
This column offers a perspective on suicidal behavior among gifted students that moves away from a wholly psychological perspective to more of a community-based perspective. This model does not undervalue the role of the field of psychology in explaining suicidal behavior, but speaks instead to the importance of the salient influences of culture, context, and community on suicidal behavior among this group. The author discusses one specific aspect of the phenomenon of suidice: contagion.
