Quote of the day 19 Nov 2015

The remediation (or therapy) of the suicidal state lies in addressing and mollifying the vital frustrated needs. The therapist does well to have this template of psychological needs in mind so that the therapy can be tailor-made for that patient. Often, just a little bit of mollification of the patient’s frustrated needs can change the vital balance sufficiently to save a life. Edwin Shneidman, Suicide as Psychache
