Abstract

The 2 basic points made by R. C. Bedrosian and A. T. Beck (see record 1979-26242-001) in their criticism of the author's (see record 1978-27665-001) article on Black and White suicide attempters are addressed: the appropriateness of the variables chosen and the interpretation of the results with regard to Black psychology. A rationale is given for the inclusion of clinical variables that were not particularly relevant to suicide attempt behavior. Two additional variables, history of alcohol and illicit drug abuse, are reported to support the similarity position between Black and White suicide attempters.
