The Adolescent: The Individual in Cultural Perspective.
Berman, Alan L.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v27 n1 p5-14 Spr 1997
Uses case vignettes to highlight the idiosyncratic dynamics and special cultural influences that describe adolescent suicides. Extrapolates from these cases a series of aphorisms about the study of adolescent suicide and about adolescence, so as to help clinicians and researchers appreciate individuals in their cultural context.
