Gifted Adolescent Suicide: The Empirical Base.
Dixon, David N.; Scheckel, Jill R.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v7 n3 p386-92 Spr 1996
This paper examines the literature on adolescent suicide in search of specific risk factors differentiating gifted adolescents. Suicide levels for adolescents in general are found to have increased dramatically over the past decade, with gifted adolescents possibly at greater risk due to higher success rates in their suicide attempts.
