Adolescents' Attitudes Toward Suicide: Does Knowledge that the Parents Are Divorced Make a Difference?
Gibson, Jeffie A.; And Others
Journal of Divorce, v10 n1-2 p163-67 Fall-Win 1986
High school students (N=120) read versions of teenager's death in which teenager lived either with both parents or with divorced mother, and died from either a rare disease or suicide. Students reported comparatively negative attitudes toward suicide victims and families and toward divorced parents and their children. Combination of divorce and suicide did not exacerbate negative perceptions. (Author/ABL)
