Attachment representation and suicidal ideation in Vietnam combat veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder.
Arch Suicide Res. 2009; 13(2):195-9.AS

Abstract

Attachment representation has been linked to psychopathology and suicidality. Possible links between attachment representations and suicidal ideation in a PTSD sample were examined. Vietnam combat veterans in treatment for PTSD (N = 48) were assessed for PTSD severity, attachment representation and current and lifetime suicidality. Contrary to expectation individuals with secure attachment representations had higher levels of current suicidal ideation than those with insecure attachment representations, and unresolved/disorganized attachment was associated with lower levels of current suicidal ideation. Secure attachment may not provide protection against high levels of distress and suicidal ideation among combat veterans with PTSD.
