I Want Attention
Classroom Intervention after Suicide
This chapter describes the author's experience in counselling teenagers who had experienced losing someone close to them through suicide, suggesting that one of the dangers of suicide, which is not relevant to other causes, is that it is infectious. Because of this, it is important for survivors in the family and friends to be checked for suicidal ideas. The chapter argues that making a time and place for relatives or friends to voice their feelings and concerns without being judged is an important part of the debriefing process.
