Abstract

Norman Farberow a great psychologist known for being at the forefront of suicide prevention passed away on September 10, 2015, on World Suicide Prevention Day, at the age of 97. He is quoted as saying, “Suicidal people are made, not born. We can therefore unmake them as we learn more about the roots of self-destructive behavior. Suicide is less a decision than a reaction. I believed that if they could learn what is being reacted to, then we would have an opportunity to interrupt the suicidal impulse.
