Last year there were 668 deaths from suicide in our country and the statistics show this number is increasing. Our current government has made it a priority to address this issue.

In this seminar Dr Hedges will draw on empirical research and outline promising treatment approaches informed by a range of significant  theorists including Freud, Jung, Linehan, Kernberg and Joiner, along with attachment theorists. He will present a Relational Listening approach for treating and managing suicidality.
