Being arrested constitutes a break in the stream of existence. Among foreigners, incarceration is a potential traumatic event often characterized by language difficulties that make the diagnosis complicated and misleading. However, an early and correct diagnosis process is at the core of prevention and reduction of suicides and self-harming acts. The clinical interview and specific rating scales are inefficient to achieve the diagnosis in foreign subjects because of poor education levels, linguistic barriers and cultural differences. The aim of this research is to show the efficacy of the Lüscher Color Test to evaluate the risk factors for suicide. The analysis, supported by the software SPSS, revealed how the use of the Color test could predict the risk for suicide in inmates.
Keywords: Inmates, suicide risk, assessment, foreigners, Color test.
