The Aeschi Working Group
MEETING THE SUICIDAL PERSON
The therapeutic approach to the suicidal patient
AESCHI CONFERENCE, 1. - 4. MARCH 2006
EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS FOR SUICIDAL INDIVIDUALS:
WHAT ARE THE COMMON PATHWAYS?
Contributions included psychotherapeutic approaches such as psychoanalysis, CBT, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, VoiceTherapy, interview techniques such as CAMS and video-self-confrontation, as well as reviews of the physiological and neurobiological aspects of treatment. Every morning, a video-recorded patient interview was shown and treatment options discussed by psychotherapy experts.
For the 4th Aeschi meeting we asked the question: Can we find certain commonalities in the treatments that have proved to be effective? What are the common elements or pathways of such treatments? Can we specify what it is that helps people to choose life and not death in future suicidal crises?
