Running head: ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 1 Annotated Bibliography Suicide and Substance Abuse Student Name SOC490 Social Science Capstone Instructor University Date ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 2 Annotated Bibliography ­ Suicide and Substance Abuse Brady, J. (2006). The association between alcohol misuse and suicidal behavior.  Alcohol and  Alcoholism 41(5), 473­478.  Retrieved from Research Database. Referenced under last week’s assignment, Brady reviews alcohol abuse and suicidal behavior  indicating this does not spare age, gender, socioeconomic, or cultural groups. This literature will  be substantial in associating the Social Learning Theory with alcohol abuse and suicide.  Center for Disease Control (n.d.). Suicides due to alcohol and/or drug abuse. Retrieved from:­a.pdf This site provides the statistics needed to incorporate into my research. Hanson, G., & Venturelli, P. J. (1998). Drugs and Society. Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett.  Retrieved from: EBCOhost Database This book investigates the social learning theory in relationship to alcohol abuse and the  motivations of using drugs and alcohol. Social influences, significant others, and subcultures are  examined.  Jensen, G. and Akers, R. (2005). Empirical status of social learning theory of crime and  deviance: the past, present, and future. Retrieved from Sage Journals This paper reviews empirical research on the validity of the social learning theory and deviant  behavior. The theory stands up to the major criteria for a sound theory and strength of empirical  support. The authors also propose building the Social Structure and Social Learning model for  efforts of global social learning. I am not sure if this article will be used for my research, but it is  a foundation for ideas. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 3 Kessler, R., Borges G., Walters, E. (1999). Prevalence of and risk factors for lifetime suicide  attempts in the National Comorbidity Survey. Arch Gen Psychiatry. 56, 617­626. Kessler provides the data necessary to confirm the link between substance abuse and suicide is  empirical. Studies of individuals in substance abuse treatment programs report a commonality of  past and present suicidal thoughts, behavior, and attempts. This will be helpful in analysis of  research methodology methods. Kõlves, K., Värnik, A., Tooding, L., & Wasserman, D. (2006). The role of alcohol in suicide: A  case­control psychological autopsy study. Psychological Medicine, 36(7), 923­30.  Retrieved from ProQuest Database.  This study estimates the proportions of alcohol abuse and dependence among suicides and  controls. Although this is more of a psychological study and uses the DSM­IV, I think the  information will support the social learning theory. Lamis, D. and Malone, P. (2012). Alcohol use and suicidal behaviors among adults: a synthesis  and theoretical model. Retrieved from: Suicidology Online 2012. 3, 4­23.  This article presents a theoretical framework explaining why adult alcohol users engage in  suicidal behaviors. The association between these behaviors lacks empirical research. Review  and evaluation of evidence is presented among several constructs. The goal of the research is to  understand the link and associations in creating effective prevention programs. Miller, T. R., Teti, L. O., Lawrence, B. A., & Weiss, H. B. (2010). Alcohol involvement in  hospital­admitted nonfatal suicide acts. Suicide & Life ­ Threatening Behavior, 40(5),  492­9. Retrieved from: EBCOhost database.  ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 4 Analysis of alcohol involvement is quantitatively recorded finding statistical data among gender,  age, culture, and economic conditions resulting in suicidal attempts. Overall, the literature shows alcohol involvement rose and fell with age with possible reasons for the differences. Pompili, M., Serafini, G., Innamorati, M., Dominici, G. Ferracuti, S., Kotzalidis, G. Serra, G.  Girardi, P., Janiri, L., Tatarelli, R., Sher, L., and Lester, D. (2010). Suicidal behavior and  alcohol abuse. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 7.  1392­1431. Retrieved from: Jstor database. This article confirms increased suicide risks are associated with social withdrawal, breakdown of social bonds, and social marginalization. Screenings for psychiatric symptoms and dependence  or depression are suggested for suicidality. Drinking habits are examined and taken into account  to reinforce healthy behavioral paradigms.  Sher, L. (2006).  Alcohol consumption and suicide.  Oxford Journals Medicine.  QJM: An  International Journal of Medicine 99,(1) 57­61. Retrieved from:  Confirming research from other sources, 90% of Western countries use alcohol and 40%  experience impairment in some area of life. This article examines the multiple sociocultural and  environmental factors influencing suicide rates. Aggression and impulse are strongly associated  with suicide behavior. Other factors are considered throughout the article as well as the  determination middle­age and older men are at a higher risk of suicidal behavior. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 5 Stack, S. (2000). Suicide: A 15­year review of the sociological literature part I: Cultural and  economic factors. Suicide & Life ­ Threatening Behavior, 30(2), 145­62. Retrieved from:  ProQuest Database Review of cultural and economic patterns from 130 sociological works on suicide are reviewed.  The Durkheim perspective on suicide is questioned in relation to the impact of media, alcohol,  modernization, religion, and politics. I think this will be valuable to my project.
