Five groups of clergy were administered a scale to assess their knowledge of suicide lethality & a suicide attitudinal questionnaire. Results indicate that clergy as a group are not able to recognize signs of suicide lethality any better than educated laypersons, & that such recognition is related to a cluster of attitudes, including that suicide is more reflective of personal dynamics rather than external factors. 22 Refs.
