The Childhood Experiences of Care Abuse interview & the Life Events & Difficulties Schedule were conducted on 47 suicide attempters. Sexual abuse significantly discriminated between repeaters & non-repeaters. Negative life events were also significantly associated with repetition. Suggestions for future research are discussed.
