Reasons for Living versus Reasons for Dying: Examining the Internal Debate of Suicide.
Jobes, David A.; Mann, Rachel E.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v29 n2 p97-104 Sum 1999
Suicidal university counseling center patients provided information on reasons for living and dying (RFL/RFD). Analysis showed high levels of interrater reliability. Chi-square results for both coding categories showed coding categories were not equally salient to suicidal patients. Category results can be used to make the underlying constructs of suicide the focus of treatment. (Author/JDM)
