Abstract

This study examined the relationship between gender role conflict and propensity for suicidality in adolescent and emerging adult males using a resilience perspective. Multiple regression modeling revealed a complex relationship, namely that competition and motivation for success in males served as protective against suicidality while associating emotional disclosure with anxiety or negativity served as a risk factor. Identifying risk through assessment of the loss of protective factors in male youth can help to identify threats to positive youth development before the onset of suicidal ideation. This may be useful in studying the earlier processes in the development of suicidality.
