This study examines the coping skills used throughout life by adolescents who have killed themselves, & compares them to the coping strategies used by other adolescents. For both groups, parents answered a 73 item questionnaire. Significant differences were found between the 2 groups in their responses to disagreements with adults, their overall self concept, & the method of family problem solving. (VM)
