AIMS The Schematic Appraisals Model of Suicide (SAMS) suggests that positive self-appraisals may be important for buffering suicidal thoughts and behaviours, potentially providing a key source of resilience. The current study aimed to explore whether positive self-appraisals buffered individuals from suicidality in the face of stressful life events. METHOD 78 participants who reported experiencing some degree of suicidality were recruited from a student population. They completed a battery of… Expand

Resilience to suicidality: the buffering hypothesis.
TLDR

Vulnerability and resiliency to suicidal behaviours in young people
TLDR
Vulnerability/resiliency to suicidal responses among those depressed (and those not depressed) is influenced by an accumulation of factors including: family history of suicide, childhood sexual abuse, personality factors, peer affiliations and school success. Expand
Prediction of suicide intent in hospitalized parasuicides: reasons for living, hopelessness, and depression.
TLDR
Regression analyses indicated that the Survival and Coping Beliefs Scale emerged as the single most important predictor of suicide intent, and Hopelessness and depression made secondary and nonsignificant contributions. Expand
Suicide risk in schizophrenia: explanatory models and clinical implications, The Schematic Appraisal Model of Suicide (SAMS).
TLDR
This work suggests a modification to the Cry of Pain model of suicide behaviour which replaces concepts of defeat, entrapment, and lack of rescue with a four-stage appraisal process in conjunction with information-processing biases and suicidal schema. Expand
Elaborating the cry of pain model of suicidality: Testing a psychological model in a sample of first-time and repeat self-harm patients.
TLDR
The findings provide further empirical support for the CoP Model and are discussed in relation to theory and practice and are recommended that the findings are replicated within a prospective design. Expand
Stress, social support, and problem-solving appraisal/skills: Prediction of suicide severity within a college sample
This study assessed whether stress, social support, and interpersonal problem-solving appraisal/skills were predictive of level of suicidality within a chronic suicidal college sample. StepwiseExpand
The reasons for living inventory and a college population: adolescent suicidal behaviors, beliefs, and coping skills.
TLDR
Hopes and depression and social desirability was found to be high among those who were not suicidal and declined as suicidal behaviors became more severe, and a significant difference existed between suicidal and nonsuicidal individuals on the RFL. Expand
Toward a clinical model of suicidal behavior in psychiatric patients.
TLDR
A stress-diathesis model is proposed in which the risk for suicidal acts is determined not merely by a psychiatric illness but also by a diathesis, reflected in tendencies to experience more suicidal ideation and to be more impulsive and, therefore, more likely to act on suicidal feelings. Expand
The Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R):Validation with Clinical and Nonclinical Samples
TLDR
Examination of the reliability and validity of a brief self-report measure of past suicidal behavior, the Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R), found that the most useful cutoff scores on the SBQ- R were 7 for nonsuicidal samples, and 8 for clinical samples. Expand
Risk Factors for Suicide and Attempted Suicide among Young People

TLDR
Current research evidence suggests that the strongest risk factors for youth suicide are mental disorders (in particular, affective disorders, substance use disorders and antisocial behaviours) and a history of psychopathology, indicating that priorities for intervening to reduce youth suicidal behaviours lie with interventions focused upon the improved recognition, treatment and management of young people with mental disorders.

Developing psychological perspectives of suicidal behaviour and risk in people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia: we know they kill themselves but do we understand why?
TLDR
The biopsychosocial 'Cry of Pain' model provides a broad framework from which to understand suicidal behaviour and the potential for applying the model to clinical management of suicide in schizophrenia is illustrated. Expand
