Anger Relevant to Teen Suicide Attempts

A recent study in the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (Daniel, Goldston, Erkanli, Franklin, & Mayfield, 2009) finds that anger is important in the prediction of teen suicide.  One hundred and eighty adolescents, between 12 and 19 years old, who had been hospitalized for psychiatric reasons in the mid 1990s, were followed for up to 13 years following their discharge from the hospital. Findings indicated that both trait anger (i.e., one’s propensity to experience anger) and anger expression (i.e., how one expresses their anger when angry) predicted future suicide attempts.
