Rogers, James R.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v79 n1 p16-25 Win 2001
Discusses the strengths and limitations of the current pragmatic focus of research in suicidology and presents an argument for theoretical grounding as a precursor for continued advancement in this area. Presents an existential-constructivist framework of "meaning creation" as a theoretical heuristic for understanding suicide. Outlines general areas of challenge and stress that may provide pathways to suicide. (Contains 41 references.) (Author/GCP)
