In this regard, Durkheim revealed that when an individual is detached from others, the tendency of suicide increases (Ferrante, 2014).
Altruistic signifies a stage in which connections attaching the individuals to others or a group are such that an individual has no existence beyond that group. In this situation, people commit suicide, as they cannot disconnect themselves from the group (Ferrante, 2014).
Anomic is defined as an individual’s connection with others or groups that are disrupted due to economic boom. It may also change dramatically due to the effect of social circumstances (Ferrante, 2014).
Fatalistic can be defined as a state wherein the ties between the individuals and the society get obsolete, inclining individuals towards committing suicide. In this situation, the individuals feel that their future has become permanently blocked, which eventually becomes a reason for them to commit suicide (Ferrante, 2014).
In case of United States, it can be ascertained that more suicides are committed amid the age of 15 to 19 years. Moreover, elderly people also commit suicide specially those who are males. According to Durkheim, the factors including sudden unemployment and social relation problems caused most of the suicides in the US (Ferrante, 2014).
According to Jean Piaget, a developmental psychologist, active adaptation refers to a biological tendency of living life, which denotes that humans have to adopt, adjust and respond towards various challenges. In this regard, Piaget believed that learning and logical thoughts are important tools that help in overcoming diverse challenges (Ferrante, 2014).
Cognitive model of Piaget mainly involves four series of stages. In the sensorimotor stage, children from birth till age 2, develop their sensory organs and through taste, sight, hearing, smell and touch, they can recognize the people as well as the objects existing around them.
