History of family suicide behaviors and negative problem solving in multiple suicide attempters.

Author information

  • 1University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA.


This study examined the relationship between family history of suicide, negative problem solving orientation and suicide attempt status (multiple suicide attempters versus single suicide attempters). Suicide attempters with a family history of suicide were more likely to have multiple suicide attempts when compared to suicide attempters who did not have a family history of suicide. This relationship was consistent with a model in which the relationship between family history and suicide attempt status is mediated by negative problem solving. Results of this study are discussed as they pertain to the theory and treatment of suicide attempters.
