    2. This book was oh kay On one hand, I loved how it so accurately described the inner world of the chronically suicidal patient, and encouraged the reader to understand and empathise with how unbearable this state can be However, on the other hand, I feel like this book walks a very dangerous line in regard to its treatment recommendations for such patients much like Marsha Linehan, this author seems to encourage the suck it up approach to suicidal behaviour he generally discourages practitioners f [...]
