Working therapeutically with Suicide and Suicidal Ideation

The workshop aims to enable us to think about suicide and increase our understanding of this complex subject while exploring the meaning behind this powerful act. It intends to help us to understand its individual nature. It also examines the destructive aspects and the unconscious intentions and fantasy behind the act, both as an act for and against the self.  

The aim of the workshop is to engage thinking about suicide so that clinical practitioners can gain greater awareness and understanding of suicide in order that they can assess and work more confidently with suicidal patients where clinically indicated and face the fears associated with suicide.
