Dhingra, Katie, Boduszek, Daniel, Hyland, Philip and Shagufta, Sonia (2015) Suicide attempts among incarcerated homicide offenders. Suicidology Online, 6 (2). pp. 27-34. ISSN 2078-5488Full text not available from this repository.
The aim was to investigate the role of age, drug abuse, period of confinement, loneliness, difficulty in controlling emotions, having no friends in prison, victimization in prison, guilt over crimes, insomnia, nightmares, anxiety, depression, and mood change in predicating suicide attempts in a sample of homicidal young prisoners. Poisson regression model indicated that five variables contributed significantly to the prediction of suicide attempts. Specifically, participants reporting drug abuse, difficulty in controlling emotions, victimization in prison, nightmares, and depression were significantly more likely to report suicide attempts while incarcerated.
