HOW YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN ASSESS PARENTS OF A CHILD SUICIDE VICTIM
Research in the area of attitudes toward child suicide may aid professionals in helping grieving friends and families and help pinpoint areas where more education maybe needed. This study examined the differences between young men and women in their blaming of parents for a child's suicide. A total of 124 people read one of three scenarios and answered the Youth Suicide Scale (YSS). Results revealed men to be more blaming of parents of a child suicide than were women. There was no main effect for the age of the victim in the scenarios when using the total YSS score, but when using only question four, replicating past use of the YSS, subjects blamed the parents of the 10 year old more than the other two age groups.
