Risk-Taking Behavior and Adolescent Suicide Attempts.
Stanton, Cassandra; Spirito, Anthony; Donaldson, Deidre; Boergers, Julie
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v33 n1 p74-79 Spr 2003
Examines the overall rates of common risk-taking behaviors in a sample of 109 adolescents who made a suicide attempt, compared to a matched control sample. No differences in either the total number of risk-taking behavior or the frequency of individual risk-taking behaviors were found. These findings suggest that suicide attempts in adolescents are not a function of risk-taking behavior. (Contains 20 references.) (GCP)
