Exploring the Interpersonal Communication Aspects of Suicide:
A Research Agenda for Communi-Suicidology
Abstract
This paper develops the interpersonal communication aspects of
suicide. Although suicidologists have identified communication as
a critical part of the suicide/suicide prevention process,
communication researchers have not given suicidal communication
the attention it deserves. The communication between the suicidal
individual and his/her friends, family, and professionals is one
of the most important aspect of the suicidal process. An
explication and definition of ‘suicide’ are presented in terms of
communication and an interpersonal communication model is
proposed to synthesize extant literature. The model incorporates
three major stages of interpersonal communication in the suicidal
cycle. Each of these stages is discussed as an opportunity for
potential research. The goal of this paper and model is to offer
a better understanding of the interpersonal communication
processes involved in suicide for the purpose of more effective
suicide prevention.
Suicidology, the study of suicide and suicidal behavior, has
involved scholars from numerous disciplines such as sociology
(Durkheim, 1951), psychology (Shneidman, 1985), and psychiatry
