Out of This World – An Examination of Suicide and Suicidal Thinking
Antonia Murphy
AIM: To engage our thinking about suicide for a greater understanding of this complex and frightening subject. Of interest to therapists who wish to be more confident in their effectiveness in working with the suicidal and to anyone who wishes to know more about this difficult area. It is hoped that those attending the workshop will empower you to intervene, support and work with, or simply stand alongside, those who are suicidal.
The workshop will explore:
What is suicide? – theories and ways of understanding suicide
Commonalities of suicide / myths about suicide
The suicide fantasy – examining the unconscious fantasy of the suicidal act
Signs and Clues – getting a sense of the suicidal mind
Exploring the consequences – when suicide happens
