Why Do People Want to Die? A Psychological Conversation About Suicide and Trauma (Tom Smiley)

July 27, 2017

The modern world is desperate to live and to die. Medicine has never been more able to prolong and protect life, yet many are equally determined to end their lives. This lecture explores the effects of psychological trauma on a person’s relationship to life and death, the place of shame in suicide and self-harm, and what can be done to help those who are suffering.

A lecture given by Tom Smiley (Clinical Psychologist) at English L'Abri on 21 July, 2017. For more information, visit labri.org/england and for more L'Abri lectures, visit the L'Abri Ideas Library.
