Sociological Research Methods Suicide In this article, it stressed that suicide, whether it is in the act of or considering it, is in association with psychological problems. Depression is a significant factor, however it is not the only factor, suicide can come from many things, and approaching this in the theoretical approaches is explained in the article. People who become suicidal feel isolated from family, friends as well as society which may explain their loneliness and the lack of concern they may have for the things around them. They have mood swings and believe they have little reason to live. Because they feel they do not relate to society, they may also have conflicts, and feel hopeless if they have physical disorders. The use of drugs and or alcohol adds to their depression which may trigger suicide. This article focused on the critical orientation of sociology to explain suicide and those at risk of committing suicide.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
