Ethnocultural Aspects of Suicide in Young People: A Systematic Literature Review Part 2: Risk Factors, Precipitating Agents, and Attitudes Toward Suicide
Colucci, Erminia; Martin, Graham
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v37 n2 p222-237 Apr 2007
Different scholars have expressed the same regret for the lack of research on ethnocultural differences in youth suicide behavior and the need to conduct more comparative studies, necessary to develop culturally responsive prevention and intervention strategies. The authors reviewed 82 publications on youth suicide that have considered, to different degrees, the ethnicity/culture of the population studied. Part 1 of this article explored youth suicide rates and methods (SLTB, this issue), while the present paper examines risk and precipitating factors and attitudes toward suicide in young people from a cross-cultural perspective.
