Greening, Leilani; Stoppelbein, Laura; Luebbe, Aaron; Fite, Paula J.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v40 n4 p337-345 Aug 2010
Two subtypes of aggression--reactive and proactive--were examined to see how they relate to suicidal behaviors among young children admitted for acute psychiatric inpatient care. The children and their parents completed self-report questionnaires/interviews. Regression analyses revealed that depressed girls who scored higher on reactive aggression reported more suicidal behaviors; whereas proactive aggression did not relate to suicidal behaviors for either boys or girls.
