Devaluating Death Education through Short-Term Suicide Intervention Programs.
Schmitt, Raymond L.; Ellman, Tracy D.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v24 n3 p241-45 1991-92
Responds to study (Shaffer et al., 1990) on adolescent suicide attempters and suicide prevention programs. Challenges study results, arguing against implications that effectiveness of all educational suicide intervention efforts are doomed and that suicide is function of mental illness rather than stresses and losses of life. Argues that death education courses of semester length may temper suicidal behaviors. (Author/NB)
