|Abstract: ||Objective: The aim of the present study was to compare a sample
of Portuguese individuals exposed to suicide in their families with
a control group, for lifetime suicidality. This study also evaluated
the incremental value of psychache (i.e., extreme psychological pain)
in determining suicide risk beyond the contribution associated with
having lost a family member by suicide.
Method: A total of 225 community adults participated. Two groups
were defined: a group exposed to suicide (n=53), and a control group
(n = 172).
Results: Results demonstrated that groups did significantly differ
on the total score of the Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised
(SBQ-R), on the four individual SBQ-R items, and on psychache.
Results from a hierarchical multiple regression analysis demonstrated
that having lost a family member by suicide and the construct
of psychache each provided a significant unique contribution
to explaining variance in suicide risk. The interaction between group
membership and psychache also provided a further enhancement to
the statistical prediction of suicide risk.
Conclusion: Findings are discussed with regard to their implications
for clinical intervention and postvention.|
