Use of Different Sources of Stress to Predict Hopelessness and Suicide Ideation in a College Population
Dixon W A~~Rumford K G~~et al
This investigation expands on past research by (a) evaluating differing sources of stress as predictors of both hopelessness & suicide ideation, & (b) testing for the mediating role of hopelessness. Results replicate & extend those of the previous study. Hassles accounted for unique increments in both hopelessness & suicide ideation scores after negative life events were controlled for statistically. Results also suggest that hopelessness mediates the relation between stress & suicidal thoughts.
