Presented is an evaluation of attitudes toward life & death held by suicidal, chronically ill, & normal children. Measurements were obtained by means of the children’s qualitative responses to questions that followed fairy tale stories. Each story represented one of the 4 attitudes. Multiple & univariate analysis indicates that each of the 3 groups of children has a unique response profile that differentiates it from the other groups. 14 ref. (NBB)
