Family rigidity and adolescent problem-solving deficits have each been linked to adolescent suicidal behaviors. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the hypothesis that family rigidity has primarily an indirect effect on adolescent suicidal ideation through its effect on adolescent problem-solving deficits. College students and their parents completed the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale II. Students also completed the Problem-Solving Inventory and the Adult Suicidal ideation Questionnaire. Structural equation models confirmed that family rigidity has an indirect effect on adolescent suicidal ideation through its effect on adolescent problem-solving deficits. Directions for treatment efforts are discussed.
