My free Monday pdf download: Correlates of Fire-setting

This paper was based on findings from the first wave of a longitudinal study of 2596 South Australian 1st year high school students from 27 schools. Initially we developed the research as a longitudinal study of precursors to suicidality in adolescents. We  reasoned that if rates of suicide begin to rise after the age of 15, there may be some markers in 13 year olds (1st Year High School in Australia) that would allow us to develop in-school prevention programs.

The paper describes some intriguing findings from the first wave.
