Schwartz, Robert C.; Cohen, Benjamin N.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v79 n3 p314-19 Sum 2001
Investigates risk factors for current suicidality in clients diagnosed with schizophrenia (N=223). Results indicate that severity of depressive symptoms most strongly correlated with degree of suicidality. Younger age and recent traumatic stress each significantly predicted suicidality independent of depressive symptoms. Suggests that the combination of depression, younger age, and traumatic stress might provide a general prediction model for suicidality. (Contains 44 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
