Lees, John and Stimpson, Quentin (2007) A psychodynamic approach to suicide. In: Palmer, Stephen, (ed.) Suicide: strategies and interventions for reduction and prevention. Routledge, London, pp. 173-183. ISBN 978-1-58391-994-1Full text not available from this repository.
This paper begins by critically exploring Freudian and post-Freudian understandings of suicide while drawing several examples from clinical practice. The paper then reconsiders psychodynamic approaches to suicidal clients from a Levinasian ethical position. Suggests that suicide may be a logical part of what it is to be human, rather than an indication of mental illness.
