A Simple Method to Predict Crises After Suicide Attempts (Parasuicides)

  • G. Sonneck
  • W. Horn


In many hospitals, the treatment and adequate care of patients after a parasuicide is — from a quantitative viewpoint — a growing problem and, seen qualitatively, one which remains unsolved. The separation of somatic therapy from the ensuing psychiatric examination, while omitting the psychosocial problems involved here, generally leads to unsatisfactory results (Wedler 1984). For this reason, an integrated treatment program within the hospital is to be recommended.
