This paper discusses the relationship between prolonged traumatic stress & subsequent suicidality by reviewing studies that have examined suicidal behaviour in relationship to child abuse & combat trauma. Traumatic stress is conceptualized according to a person-environment interactional paradigm, & this paradigm is used to discuss the characteristics of traumatic events, recovery environments, & individuals that may contribute to subsequent suicidality.
