Scientific News and Reading Suggestions #3

Our new reading suggestion is about the recent publication by our members, in alphabetical order, Raffaella Calati, Philippe Courtet, Sebastien Guillaume and Emilie Olié:

Psychological Pain in Suicidality: A Meta-Analysis.
Ducasse D, Holden RR, Boyer L, Artéro S, Calati R, Guillaume S, Courtet P, Olié E.
J Clin Psychiatry. 2017 Aug 29. pii: 16r10732. doi: 10.4088/JCP.16r10732.

We also asked the Authors to prepare a brief presentation of their work to share with you all, so here it is:

“This is a meta-analysis on the association between psychological pain and current or lifetime history of suicidal ideation (SI) and suicide attempt (SA). Twenty case-control studies have been included. The intensity of psychological pain was found to be higher, even when controlling for depression, in: 1) subjects with lifetime history of SI and subjects with current SI versus without; 2) subjects with lifetime history of SA and subjects with current SA versus without.”

You can find it also in the recently published Section Members’ publications, Report Pubmed May-August 2017.
