This presentation reported on a study which examined the effects of stress on attitudes toward sucide. 90 undergraduate students completed 2 Suicide Attitude Vignette Experience questionnaires, one prior to & one following manipulation of stress levels. Results did not support the hypothesis that participants in the high stress condition would be the most accepting of suicide, & participants in the low stress condition would be the least accepting of suicide. It was concluded transitory stress does not affect attitudes toward suicide.
