Suizid im Jugendalter (German Edition) by Stefanie Gast

By Stefanie Gast

Täglich sterben drei Jugendliche in Deutschland durch Suizid, mehr als zehn Jugendliche begehen einen Suizidversuch. Damit stellen Suizide, neben Unfällen, die häufigste Todesursache bei Jugendlichen dar. Eine erschreckende Zahl und Grund genug, sich mit diesem Thema zu befassen.

Suizide und Suizidversuche sind Verhaltensweisen, die den verzweifelten Versuch einer Konfliktbewältigung darstellen. Durch die suizidale Handlung beendet der Jugendliche eine für ihn unerträgliche scenario. Suizid und Suizidversuch werden daher als misslungene Bewältigung von Belastungen angesehen. Sie sind das Ergebnis einer Eskalation am Ende einer langandauernden Problemgeschichte. Daraus folgt, dass ein Suizid nie aus heiterem Himmel geschieht. Er hat immer eine Vorgeschichte. Die Ursachen und auslösenden Momente für den Suizid und Suizidversuch sind sehr vielfältig und in einigen Fällen nur schwer obvious zu machen.

"Warum?" ist die erste Frage, die wir uns stellen, wenn ein junger Mensch sich das Leben genommen hat oder einen Suizidversuch beging.

In diesem Buch möchte ich dieser Frage nachgehen und möchte mögliche Antworten auf das "Warum" geben, denn die Beantwortung dieser Frage liefert den Schlüssel zur Therapie der Suizidanten. Das Buch erklärt den Suizid, indem es Ursachen und Hintergründe aufdeckt. Ferner macht dieses Buch auf Anzeichen aufmerksam, die ein erhöhtes Suizidrisiko bedeuten. Wenn wir die Anzeichen wahrnehmen und richtig deuten, können wir die Anzahl der jungen Menschen, die sich das Leben nehmen, reduzieren. Denn die wenigsten Jugendlichen wollen wirklich sterben, sie wollen nur nicht mehr weiterleben wie zuvor. Und wir können ihnen helfen.
