Availability: In stock

Quick Overview

Working in the Dark is an academic research that focuses on the authors' understanding of an individual's pre-suicide state of mind, based on their work with many suicidal individuals, with special attention to those who attempted suicide while in treatment. 

The book explores how to listen to a suicidal individual's history, the nature of their primary relationships and their conscious and unconscious communications. Campbell and Hale address the searing emotional impact on relatives, friends and those involved with a person who tries to kill themselves, by offering advice on the management of a suicide attempt and how to follow up in the aftermath.

Establishing key concepts such as suicide fantasy and pre-suicidal states in adolescents, the book illustrates the pre-suicide state of mind through clinical vignettes, case studies, reflections from those in recovery and discussions with professionals. Working in the Dark will be of interest to social workers, probation officers, nurses, psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and doctors who work with those who have attempted suicide or are about to do so.
