1. -3729-7368. Perceived social support, thwarted interpersonal needs, and distress due to suicide ideation among psychiatric inpatients: The moderating effects of criminal associates.

Degree: PhD, Psychology - Clinical, 2017, Texas Tech University

Suicide is a significant concern among psychiatric inpatients. The interpersonal theory of suicide may provide a theoretical lens through which to conceptualize suicide ideation within this group. This theory posits that thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness are risk factors for suicide ideation. The theory also suggests that thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness are related, yet distinct constructs. That is, although perceived burdensomeness requires one to have relationships on which to feel a burden, these relationships may not always fulfill the need to belong; thus, thwarted belongingness may still be experienced. Given this, it would be expected that as one experiences greater perceived social support, he or she would report less thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness. Individuals who engage with criminal associates (i.e., individuals one knows who participate in crime) may experience poor relationship quality, which may increase psychological distress. Therefore, the association between perceived social support, thwarted belongingness, perceived burdensomeness, and distress due to suicide ideation may be stronger among those with greater involvement with criminal associates. It was hypothesized that perceived social support would be negatively associated with thwarted belongingness (H1) and perceived burdensomeness (H2), and these associations would be magnified among those with greater involvement with criminal associates. Additionally, it was hypothesized that thwarted belongingness (H3) and perceived burdensomeness (H4) would be positively associated with distress due to suicide ideation, and these associations would be magnified among those with greater involvement with criminal associates. Participants were 142 psychiatric inpatients who completed assessments of perceived social support, perceived burdensomeness, thwarted belongingness, depressive symptoms, hopelessness, involvement with criminal associates, and distress due to suicide ideation. Ordinary least squares regression, ordinal logistic regression, and multinomial logistic regression were used to test the hypotheses. The results indicated perceived social support was significantly negatively associated with thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness. Additionally, thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness were significantly associated with greater odds of experiencing distress due to suicide ideation. Contrary to the hypotheses, these associations did not vary based on involvement with criminal associates. The models were also tested when adjusting for depressive symptoms and hopelessness. Implications and limitations are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Alquist, Jessica L. (committee member), Littlefield, Andrew K. (committee member), Morgan, Robert D.

2. Roush, Jared F. Thwarted interpersonal needs and suicide ideation among psychiatric inpatients: An examination of six psychological processes underlying acceptance and commitment therapy.

Degree: PhD, Psychology - Clinical, 2018, Texas Tech University

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in psychiatric hospitals. The interpersonal theory of suicide (IPTS) posits that desire for suicide occurs when thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness are experienced simultaneously, and one feels hopeless that these states will change. Given some of the mixed findings related to the IPTS among psychiatric inpatients, there may be utility in incorporating other empirically-supported theories that may not have received much attention in the suicide literature to help explain the conditions that may strengthen the relation between thwarted belongingness and suicide ideation, and perceived burdensomeness and suicide ideation. The psychological flexibility model is comprised of six interrelated processes: experiential avoidance (as opposed to experiential acceptance), cognitive fusion (as opposed to cognitive defusion), inflexible attention (as opposed to flexible attention to the present moment), self-as-content (as opposed to self-as-context), disruption of values (as opposed to valued living), and inaction toward values (as opposed to committed action). The aim of the current study was to integrate the IPTS and the psychological flexibility model. Participants in the current study included 118 psychiatric inpatients. Results indicated a significant positive association between thwarted belongingness and suicide ideation, but not between perceived burdensomeness and suicide ideation after adjusting for depressive symptoms, social desirability bias, age, and gender. Results also indicated that experiential avoidance, cognitive fusion, flexible attention to the present moment, and self-as-context did not significantly moderate the relation between thwarted belongingness and suicide ideation or between perceived burdensomeness and suicide ideation after adjusting for covariates. Further, there were significant direct negative associations between valued living and suicide ideation, valued living and thwarted belongingness, and valued living and perceived burdensomeness. These results suggest that reporting a stronger connection with one’s values is associated with less suicide ideation, less thwarted belongingness, and less perceived burdensomeness among psychiatric inpatients. Importantly, it appears that the strength of the negative association between valued living and thwarted belongingness and between valued living and perceived burdensomeness does not decrease as a function of committed action. Additional research and possibly refinement of the IPTS and psychological flexibility model are suggested prior to the development and implementation of suicide-specific treatments.
