Seduction of Suicide offers a new and radically different explanation of certain suicidal behavior – how suicide can be addictive. This is a powerful book, filled with dark, sometimes shocking, personal stories, but also with the incandescent light of hope. It presents a way out of hopelessness – a path towards recovery – including specific steps that suicidal people have taken to beat their compulsions.
Many people who have attempted suicide will see themselves in the stories presented. Some who have mourned the loss of loved ones to suicide will find closure, easing their bewilderment and self- blame. Therapists who are baffled by cases that have not responded to treatment will, in this book, find a new and promising approach for their clients.
