Hypothesis on suicidal behavior as interpersonal communication.

, : Hypothesis on suicidal behavior as interpersonal communication.. Sante Mentale au Quebec 12(1): 14-19

Traditionnaly, suicidal behavior has been analysed through its individual and intrapsychic components and by its links with economic and social factors. To consider suicide as a message to the environment, then by highlighting its communicationnal aspect, is a new trend in the field. In fact, suicide often has a profound impact on the personal environment of the suicidal person. We therefore set forth the following hypothesis : suicide myths and tabous might be a social rationalization and defense mechanism against the violent impact of suicidal behavior. This paper explores the communication view point of suicidal behavior which interestingly open up new possibilities in the research and intervention on suicide.

The decomposition of H2S by a two-step closed loop thermochemical decomposition process was investigated. In the first step, H2S decomposes by reacting with iron sulphide to produce hydrogen and a solid solution consisting of FeS and S2. In the se...
