Working with clients presenting with risk of suicide or a history of suicidality is often experienced as challenging and distressing for psychotherapists. This 2-hour webinar will provide some insight and understanding into the complex nature of suicidality through the lens of Gestalt theory and practice, as well as selected broader clinical frameworks. The interactive webinar will include an overview of Gestalt thinking on this topic and small group discussions around participants’ own experience and dilemmas around tackling suicidality in their psychotherapy practice.
