Tentative de suicide et impulsivité, aspects psychopathologiques et outils de mesures : une évaluation du serious game « Clash-Back Tattoo or not tattoo© »

Abstract : The vulnerability-stress model (Mann et al., 1999), interpersonal theory of suicide (Joiner, 2005) and their interactions with the identified suicidal behavior risk factors can now explain how a distal suicide ideation can suddenly appear in a stressful context and lead to suicide attempt. Objective impulsivity measures allow a detailed evaluation of cognitive dimensions at risk for suicidal behavior. Researchers are working to develop measurement tools replicating, to the experimental conditions, sensory and subjective reality of the subject to determine some key factors in suicidal behavior. From a population of adolescents aged 13-20 years hospitalized in child psychiatry department, we started a multicenter case-control study to assess the capacity of a serious game ("Clash-Back: Tattoo or not tattoo ") to evaluate the propensity to impulsive behavior. The impulsivity scores were compared with measurements made with the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11) and the inventory of character and temperament revised Cloninger (TCI-R). The results did not show significant correlations with impulsivity measurements obtained with the serious game Clash-Back "Tattoo or not tattoo" and impulsivity scale Barratt. The impulsivity scores measured with these two tools were significantly higher in the group hospitalized following a suicide attempt. The development of new tools using a digital interface and allows access to a virtual reality such as the serious game Clash back, especially in a population of adolescents, appears to offer interesting prospects in terms of risk population screening and suicide prevention.
