Is Evaluative Research on Youth Suicide Programs Theory-Driven? The Canadian Experience.
Breton, Jean-Jacques; Boyer, Richard; Bilodeau, Henriette; Raymond, Sylvaine; Joubert, Natacha; Nantel, Marie-Andree
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v32 n2 p176-90 Sum 2002
A review found that only 15 Canadian youth suicide programs were evaluated over the last decade. Descriptions of the programs were incomplete and theoretical bases for programs were not presented. Only two programs led to a reduction in suicidal behavior. Suggests that future evaluative research needs to place greater emphasis on content and theoretical bases of programs. (JDM)
