The Course of Post-Crisis Suicidal Symptoms: How and for Whom Is Suicide "Cathartic?"
Walker, Rheeda L.; Joiner, Thomas E., Jr.; Rudd, M. David
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v31 n2 p144-52 Sum 2001
Examined Modified Scale for Suicide Ideation (MSSI) scores for 198 suicidal men during suicidal crisis, prior to entry into treatment study, and again at 1-month and 12-month follow ups. Found evidence for decreased suicidality, but this was interpreted as the gradual action of interpersonal support, rather than as emotional catharsis. (BF)
