Abstract

PURPOSE
This study was conducted to identify the protective factors that influence suicide probability in religious male high school students.
METHODS
The data was collected from Nov. 5 to Dec. 10, 2009. Data were collected by self-report questionnaire from 255 students selected from 2 religious male high schools in B city. The instruments for this study were the Suicide Probability Scale for Adolescence (SPS-A), Inventory Parents Peer Attachment-Revision (IPPA-R), Spiritual Well-being Scale (SWBS), and Ego-identity Scale. The data were analyzed using t-test, one-way ANOVA, Scheffe test, Pearson correlation coefficients and stepwise multiple regression with the SPSS 14.0 program.
RESULTS
The protective factors of suicide probability in religious male high school students were identified as existential spiritual well-being (beta= -.46, p<.001), self-identity (beta= -.30, p<.001), and mother attachment (beta= -.21, p<.001). These three factors explained 61.5% of the variance in suicide probability.
CONCLUSIONS
The results suggest that improvement in spirituality, ego-identity, and mother attachment for religious male high school students is important to reduce the probability of suicide.
