Dr. Farberow examines trends in all aspects of suicide by comparing data from the bibliography of Suicide & Suicide Prevention (NC for MHI) for the period 1897-1970 with that of the 3-year period 1971-73. From his examination of this data, grouped into general research, special populations & assessment & prediction, he concludes that areas of greatest need for further research are (1) theory, (2) developmental history & (3) treatment of post-crisis subjects.
