Potential for Suicide and Aggression in Delinquents at Juvenile Court in a Southern City.
Battile, Allen O.; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v23 n3 p230-44 Fall 1993
Questioned 263 Juvenile Court offenders about whether they wished to be dead, kill themselves, or kill others and about their existential experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Used stepwise multiple logistic regression to pinpoint experiences associated with high likelihood of verbalizing wish for destructive behavior. Found sexual abuse as risk factor and presence of mother or grandmother as protective factor. (Author/NB)
