Self-Mapping in Treating Suicide Ideation: A Case Study
Robertson, Lloyd Hawkeye
Death Studies, v35 n3 p267-280 2011
This case study traces the development and use of a self-mapping exercise in the treatment of a youth who had been at risk for re-attempting suicide. A life skills exercise was modified to identify units of culture called "memes" from which a map of the youth's self was prepared. A successful treatment plan followed the mapping exercise. The process of self-map construction is presented along with an interpretive analysis. It is suggested that therapists from a range of perspectives could use this technique in assessment and treatment. (Contains 3 figures.)
