IIC 78: The Desperate Inner Experience of Suicidality



Summary

Through poetry, stories, quotes, theory, research and clinical experience, Dr. Peter invites you into the dire, terrible world of suicidality.  He makes the case that almost no one, including therapists and those who have attempted suicide, understand suicide very well.  And he brings in perspectives from Internal Family Systems to clarify how different parts of us have different beliefs, attitudes, feelings and desires about suicide, leading to inner conflict and turmoil.
