Many suicidal patients do worry a lot about their reasons for contemplating suicide, about the meaning of life, about their failures, about their losses and disappointments, and they worry about their suicidal thoughts. Part of the suicidal urges are caused by the wish to stop this endless worrying and rumination. It is hypothesized that anti – worry exercises may help suicidal patients to decrease the amount of time a day that they are thinking of suicide, and therewith decrease the intensity of the reasons for contemplating suicides. In the workshop CBT techniques for worrying and rumination will be explained and applied to suicidal worrying. In the workshop participants are requested to present actual cases and engage in role playing, therewith train their skills in addressing persistent repetitive thoughts of suicide in patients.
