This paper presents findings of a study conducted to formulate an empirically-based model for determining suicidal ideation in children. A multicorrelational design involved 93 children, aged 11-13. The results suggest that an internalizing behavior style may be a key varialbe in assessing the likelihood that a child will develop suicidal ideation. Further, children with an internalizing behavior style may experience increased hopelessness if they perceive their family is lacking in cohesion.
