Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v32 n2 p131-38 Sum 2002
Examines the association between the experience of multiple forms of childhood abuse and suicidal behavior among low-income, African American women. Women who reported abuse did not complete high school, or who were unemployed were more likely to attempt suicide. Suggests clinicians working with African American women who are victims of abuse need to assess suicidal ideation and behavior. (JDM)
