In  bio-psycho-social model of suicidal behaviour, life events play a central role. The subjective meaning of a patient's narrative in relation to his or her suicidality can only be explored in a collaborative therapeutic approach. The Aeschi group, a small working group of suicidologists, believes that in the clinical work with suicidal patients new models of understanding the patients' subjective experience must be developed. We invited health professionals to join us in this conference dedicated to a better understanding of the suicidal mind and to improve our clinical skills in the professional encounter with suicidal patients.

Speakers/ course directors were:
D.A. Jobes (USA), A.A. Leenaars (Canada), J.T. Maltsberger (USA), K. Michel (Switzerland), I. Orbach (Israel), L.Valach (Switzerland), R. Young (Canada), M. Bostwick (USA), R. Oravecz (Slovenia), W. Rutz (Denmark)
