MEETING THE SUICIDAL PERSON
The therapeutic approach to the suicidal patient
Richard A. Young, Ph.D.
Richard A. Young is Professor of Counselling Psychology
I have worked extensively in refining the self-confrontation procedure and its relation to the development of narratives, both of which contribute to the clinical implications for meeting the suicidal patient person. Both of these are based on action theory which I have used as a theoretical base for studying family interactions in various domains. A substantial qualitative research modality has emerged from this work. Entitled the Qualitative Action-Project Method, it provides a means of addressing clinical and interactive data from the perspective of goal-directed action. I am President of the Counselling Psychology Division of the International Association of Applied Psychology for the 2006-2010 term.
