Life Stressors As The Risk Factor Of Suicidal Behavior Among Adolescent And Counseling Implications


Suicide is an issue for adolescents who are dealing with life stressors. It would be useful if counseling instructors had substantial methods for figuring out which understudies are in danger for suicide. The distinguishing proof of character attributes and practices predominant in people with self-destructive propensities, in this manner, is required. This paper surveys relevant literature to ascertain if life stressors lead to suicide in adolescents. The paper will finish up with a basic investigation of the possible counseling solutions to the risk posed by life stressors to adolescents.


Suicide is an intense issue. Very regularly, adolescents end their lives through suicide. According to Horowitz et al. (2001), immature suicides in the U.S. have significantly increased since the 1950’s, and suicide currently positions as the third driving reason for death in this age gathering. Additionally, as indicated by Horowitz et al., 53% of children ages 13-19 have had self-destructive musings. Every year, 250,000 adolescents attempt suicide, and 8%-10% of adolescents in the U.S. attempt suicide at some point in their life. In 1997, 20.5% of adolescents pondered suicide, 15.7% had an arrangement, and 7.7% really made a suicide attempt (Horowitz et al.). In another review of 300 understudies, 20% accepted that they performed self-destructive practices in the previous year (Rubenstein, Heeren, Housman, Rubin, and Stechler, 1989).

Adolescents at risk for committing suicide may not seek help. In order to help these at risk adolescents, they must first be identified as being at risk. This is not an easy task. In schools, counselors often have the responsibility of detecting warning signs to identify students at risk of committing suicide (King et al., 1999). King et al. also found that school counselors believe that it is their responsibility to recognize students at risk of suicide. Unfortunately, the findings showed that only 38% of counselors surveyed believed they could recognize a student at risk for suicide. With only 38% of counselors feeling confident in identifying students, it becomes increasingly important to aid these counselors in the identification process by giving them more information about what behavior and personality characteristics are typical of students at risk for suicide.

Suicide is an exceptionally complex issue. There are numerous troubles related with the recognizable proof of people in danger of ending it all. It tends to be troublesome in light of the fact that people resort to suicide for such a significant number of various reasons.

Youthfulness can be a troublesome time in an individual’s life. There can be a great deal of change and stress. Adolescents can encounter worry from family disunity at home just as experiencing issues with peer connections at school. These may lead an individual to suicide (Rubenstein et al., 1989)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a relation between suicidal behavior and life stressors in adolescents. Life stressor is a general term used to describe a number of factors/events which include: The death of a loved one, failure, loss of a job, increased financial obligation, emotional problems etc. This study will investigate emotional life stressors that lead to suicidal behavior. It is important to help adolescents at risk for committing suicide before they take their lives. To stop the high rate of suicidal behavior among adolescents, methods to detect and intervene to prevent suicides from occurring must be identified. “Because suicidal behavior logically precedes suicidal acts, the identification of true predictors of ideation would permit a better understanding of suicidal risk” (de Man and Leduc, 1993, p. 820).

To obtain more information about the relation between life stressors and suicidal behavior in adolescents, a review of the relevant literature follows.
