A Life History of a Korean Adolescent Girl Who Attempted Suicide
Yang, Sungeun
Death Studies, v36 n3 p253-269 2012
The present study explores the life history of a South Korean adolescent girl who attempted suicide. The study focuses on how sociocultural values affected her suicide attempt and how she made meaning out of the experience. The results revealed that her life history was a process of seeking independence and autonomy, and freeing herself from social stigmatization. The study highlights the need for professionals to examine the sociocultural context of adolescents, along with a consideration of their developmental characteristics and family relationships in order to understand adolescent suicidal behaviors.
