Aeschi West: Basic Principles in Working with Suicidal Patients” was the inaugural theme of a Mayo Clinic-sponsored three-day conference in Vail, Colorado, May 30-June 1, 2013. Organized around highly interactive lectures, videotaped interviews, seminars, and workshops, a limited number of participants came to the Rockies to learn an innovative approach for working with suicidal patients. Drawing upon principles developed in a series of conferences at Aeschi, Switzerland, the Aeschi approach emphasized the importance of therapist-client collaboration in eliciting narratives of mental anguish that culminate in suicidal behavior.

The voice of a participant:
„Again, thank you for the opportunity to join you in Vail and to share in the Aeschi experience. It indeed is a paradigm shift in not only clinical treatment of suicidal people, but utterly vital for our nation and the world as we struggle with the tragic aftermath of more than 1 million suicides every year.“
Denise Pazur
