  1. Gender roles, suicide attempts, and substance abuse.

    Article - En anglais

    In this article, the focus is on a comparison of suicide attempts and substance abuse in the United States.

    It is argued that suicide attempts and substance abuse may function as psychologically equivalent but gender-specialized forms of self-injurious behaviors.

    Possible explanations for the gender segregation of suicide attempts and substance abuse are reviewed, and the benefits of crossover theories and treatments are presented.
