Whisenhunt, Julia L.; Chang, Catherine Y.; Brack, Gregory L.; Orr, Jonathan; Adams, Lisa G.; Paige, Melinda R.; McDonald, C. Peeper L.; O'Hara, Caroline – Journal of College Counseling, 2015
The relationship between self-injury (SI) and suicide is largely unclear. However, researchers have suggested that clients who self-injure are at a heightened risk of suicide (Chapman & Dixon-Gordon, 2007; Toprak, Cetin, Guven, Can, & Demircan, 2011]). Thus, it is important that college counselors be knowledgeable about both SI and…

Klonsky, E. David; May, Alexis – Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, 2010
Elevated impulsivity is thought to facilitate the transition from suicidal thoughts to suicidal behavior. Therefore, impulsivity should distinguish those who have attempted suicide (attempters) from those who have only considered suicide (ideators-only). This hypothesis was examined in three large nonclinical samples: (1) 2,011 military recruits,…
