Suicide Causation: Pies, Paths, and Pointless Polemics.
O'Carroll, Patrick
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v23 n1 p27-36 Spr 1993
Reviews several simple conceptual models of multiple causation as they relate to suicide prevention. Suggests that more explicit understanding of nature of multiple causation has potential to obviate some misguided arguments and to facilitate cooperative prevention efforts among persons who choose to apply their energies at different points in causal chain of suicide.
