Dori, Galit A.; Overholser, James C.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v29 n4 p309-18 Win 1999
Depressed adolescents who had never attempted suicide were compared to depressed adolescents who had attempted suicide. Results showed suicidal adolescents experienced significantly greater depression and hopelessness than did nonsuicidal adolescents. However, suicidal and nonsuicidal adolescents reported similar low levels of self esteem. Suggests treatment of suicidal adolescents could benefit from strategies that focus on reducing depression and hopelessness. (Author/MKA)
