Understanding suicidal states of mind

Wed, 27 Mar 2019 12:00:00 AM – Wed, 27 Mar 2019 12:00:00 AM

Understand a suicidal state of mind. Focus on key factors in the assessment of risk using a collaborative approach that aims to equip the patient to understand and manage their propensity for self harm.

Suicidal patients often communicate their distress through how they think (thinking style) and the range of emotional reactions they manage to evoke in professionals who work closely with them.

Combining these two factors with listening to the ‘suicidal narrative’ or story can not only provide an understanding of why a suicidal solution may be sought but can bring potential relief as more constructive possibilities can open up for the patient to manage their distress instead of the wish to harm themselves.

This workshop aims to use a Psychodynamic perspective to help clinicians understand, assess and manage some of the complexities of working clinically with patients who become suicidal. We will look at case vignettes as well as examples that participants can bring to the workshop to look closely at the various modes of communication in suicidal patients who often attempt to evacuate rather than engage with their painful and unbearable feelings, largely through action.
