2 studies were done to examine the relation between dimensions of perfectionism & suicide ideation: whether perfectionism is important in suicide ideation when considered in the context of other predictors of suicide, & whether perfectionism moderates the association between life stress & suicide ideation. 91 psychiatric patients & 160 college students were studied. Overall, the results confirmed that self-oriented & socially prescribed perfectionism are associated with greater suicide ideation.
