Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

Until recently, childhood suicidal behavior has been a relatively neglected area of systematic research and clinical concern (Wells & Stuart, 1980). There were several contributing issues. First, completed suicide among children was considered to be rare. Second, it was believed that, due to a lack of physical prowess, youngsters could not affect a fatal self-injury. Third, because children under ten may not realize that death is final, it was thought that, by definition, youngsters could not be considered suicidal. Consequently, vital statistics do not catalog self-killing as a cause of death in children under ten.
