Cognitive Therapy Lowers Risk of
Second Suicide Attempt


Cognitive therapy, a psychiatric technique of straight talk about tough
problems, reduces the chance that people who have survived one
suicide attempt will try again. The risk of a second suicide try was cut
almost in half for the 60 persons who received it, compared to those
getting conventional treatment.

Cognitive therapy, developed in the 1970s, targets the thoughts and
beliefs that patients have related to a particular disorder or problem
area, aiming to change those thoughts or beliefs.

In a study, researchers recruited suicide attempters from the
emergency room and asked them to tell them the story, what led
suicide attempters to attempt suicide -- emotional triggers, major
events in their lives, reactions to those events. What their treatment
does is pinpoint where suicide attempters are having problems coping
with a crisis, and how to cope better.

The study followed the 120 participants for 18 months. Over that time,
13 of those who got cognitive therapy made a second suicide
attempt, compared to 23 of those who got standard treatment.
Measurements of depression found significantly lower levels for the
cognitive therapy group.
