Suicide and the Suicidal Body.
Orbach, Israel
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v33 n1 p1-8 Spr 2003
This article argues that bodily experiences and attitudes toward the body, such as rejection of the body, detachment, numbness, physical anhedonia, and lack of protection can facilitate acts of self-destruction. Demonstrates that suicidal individuals experience their body differently from other populations and that these are related to suicidal behavior. (Contains 31 references.) (GCP)
