Religiosity, Attributional Style, and Social Support as Psychosocial Buffers for African American and White Adolescents' Perceived Risk for Suicide.
Greening, Leilani; Stoppelbein, Laura
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v32 n4 p404-17 Win 2002
Psychological buffers were evaluated for their relative contributions to adolescents' perceived risk for suicide. Orthodoxy--commitment to core beliefs--emerged as the single strongest correlate after controlling for the effects of other buffers. The effect of depression on perceived suicide risk was moderated by the adolescent's degree of orthodoxy. (Contains 53 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
