Summary
Brief summary
Although a number of studies on efficacy of psychosocial and pharmacological treatments in preventing repetition of suicidal behaviour have been conducted, still there is a lack of evidence to indicate the most effective treatments for suicidal patients. The main objective of the study is to examine the effectiveness of a psychotherapeutic intervention (a modification of dialectic behavioural therapy) in treatment of individuals who have attempted suicide.
