This chapter provides an overview of recent research on the factors that contribute to violent behaviour. First, studies of variables that contribute to the risk of suicide are reviewed. Secondly, variables that heighten the risk of violence are studied. Third, the interrelationships between suicide & violence are discussed & the authors present some of their own recent findings. Finally, a general model or theory is described that integrates some of the observations made in this chapter.
