Although suicide is frequently a reaction to a feeling of intolerance to one of the depressive reactions discussed in the previous chapter, this is not always the case. It is important to recognize that not all suicides manifest depressive symptoms and that the psychodynamics of depression are not always sufficient to account for all suicide attempts. Some of the most typical psychodynamics involved in suicide will be discussed. It is important to recognize that several of these psychodynamic factors may be operative at one time, in any one suicidal reaction. (47 pp.)
