This book is based on a study of therapists workingwith suicidal clients and uncovers the everydayrealities they face, providing an ontologicalunderstanding of their experiences. They wereshocked when a client committed suicide in theircare. They experienced the responsibility of workingwith suicidal clients to be a burden, suffered guiltand feared punishment in the aftermath of a suicide.They also found themselves in a professional andpersonal crisis which they struggled to come toterms with. The book highlights how mainstreammental health prevention and intervention strategiesfollow on from the misrepresentation andmisinterpretation of our traditional way of knowingwhat it means to be human. It shows that, whentherapists discover that phenomena are notnecessarily what they appear to be, they feelunsettled and confused about their responsibilitiesand what it means to live and die as a human being.The author employs key Heideggarian concepts in thefield of mental health and psychology and shows howa hermeneutic-phenomenological approach tounderstanding people enables a therapeutic attitude.
