Structural Equation Model of Borderline Personality Disorder, Emotion-Focused Coping Styles, Impulsivity and Suicide Ideation in Soldiers
Abstract:
Background
Suicidal behavior is one of the fundamental strains in the area of mental health. One of the most considerable suicidal behaviors is the suicidal ideation which is an important predictor for suicide completion. This study has conducted the role of borderline personality disorder، impulsivity، and excitement-oriented coping style in predicting soldiers’ suicidal ideation.
Materials And Methods
A total of 1،659 soldiers were selected through multi-level cluster sampling method. Data were collected using Beck Suicide Ideation Scale (BSSI)، the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI-III)، UPPS Impulsive Behavior Scale، and Coping Style Questionnaire (CSQ).
Results
The result has indicated that not only the borderline personality disorder directly affects the suicidal ideation but it could also have a role in predicting the suicidal ideation via the way of directly influencing the other variants. The findings resulting from the method analysis are indicative of the intermediary role of excitement-oriented coping style and impulsivity regarding the relationship between the borderline personality disorder and suicidal ideation.
Conclusion
Therefore، the research findings exhibited that the relationship between the borderline personality disorder and the suicidal ideation could be more precisely and comprehensively explained via the intermediary variants such as the excitement-oriented coping style and impulsivity. Screening and identifying soldiers through diagnosing the borderline personality disorder and hyper impulsivity and also those individuals more frequently using the excitement-oriented coping style are effective for the purpose of restricting access to weapons in prevention of suicide attempt.
