Bibliography on bereavement



A collaboration between De Leo Fund and Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention, Griffith University


The bibliography we present here is an extract from ‘Suicide Research: Selected Readings’, a prestigious bi-annual publication produced by the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP), which is distributed world wide. Financially supported by the Australian Government (Department of Health and Ageing) with funds dedicated to the National Centre of Excellence in Suicide Prevention, this publication screens all the scientific literature produced in the world in the context of suicide, and listed in PubMed, PsycInfo, Proquest, Scopus, Web of Science and SafetyLit.
The Editorial Board of the journal chooses the best articles for each volume (about thirty pieces), critically comments them and explores their practical implications. It also selects articles of particular interest (about 60-80 per volume) reproducing their original abstract; finally, it categorizes all articles (divided between fatal and non-fatal suicidal behaviors), reporting names of authors and journals of origin.
The materials reported on the website of the De Leo Fund relate solely to publications on the theme of suicide bereavement. The list starts with the first volume of ‘Suicide Research: Selected Readings’, published for the first time in April 2009 and reprinted several times.

All of us at De Leo Fund are grateful to the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention for having made available this precious material.
