The presented research investigated the ability of pain, psychiatric diagnoses, coping styles, & locus of control to predict suicidal ideation (SI) in 75 HIV-positive persons, using a sequential logistic regression. Reported psychiatric diagnoses included depression, anxiety, & substance abuse disorders. Variance accounted for by these analyses was approximated at 33%, with pain severity independently predicting SI after accounting for psychiatric diagnoses. Coping & locus of control did not add significantly to the models. (51 refs)
