“My mother always said to Live Big. Live as much as I could.’’ Three generations of women. For each, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy. “I have Stayed. I have Stayed - I have Stayed for as long as I possibly can.” Anatomy of a Suicide premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs on 3 June 2017, in a production directed by Katie Mitchell.
Suicide is the action of killing oneself intentionally. It is a multidimensional disorder, which results from a complex interaction of biological, genetic, psychological, sociological and environmental factors. For the last few decades it has become a serious health problem in our modern societies. Throughout the world, about 2000 people kill themselves each day. Suicide is among the top 10 causes of death in the 15 to 35 year age group. This book provides a comprehensive account of the state of current knowledge concerning incidence of suicide and attempted suicide. It describes the biological, genetics, psychological, and socio-logical factors related to suicidal behaviour. It also discusses assess-ment, treatment, and prevention. It will serve as a highly useful reference too for anyone, including physicians, nurses, social workers, counsellors, teachers, clergy and parents interested in learning more about suicide.
The Anatomy of Suicide applies the interactional view of human behavior to the problem of suicide. The interactional view holds that the behavior of person A controls the behavior of person B, and vice versa. When a person threatens to kill himself or herself, this threat is intended to force another person in a relationship to change. When a person commits suicide, it signifies that the attempt to force the other person to change has failed. When a threat is carried out, it is because he or she believes that the prospect of change on the part of the other is zero. Suicide is the symbolic punishment of one person by another. Shame and guilt are the force-fields in this punitive process. After a suicidal death, at least one survivor will be blamed for it and made to live with its consequences. Into this volatile situation that is fueled by the most primitive and negative of human emotions, comes the therapist - determined to save a life. This kind of pathology is not the same as the kind a therapist normally encounters, and special interventions will be needed to prevent the suicidal act. This book spells out those methods, step by step and in full detail. By means of these strategies, the therapist can stitch together a relationship that has come apart at the seams and which, if not repaired, may have deadly consequences. Because suicide is an interpersonal event, there is good reason to believe that social sanctions will evolve to eradicate it largely from the human condition. Preventing suicide will eventually become an intrinsic achievement of social control.
The story of Orville Gibson, a Newbury, Vermont farmer whose frozen body was found in the waters of the Connecticut River on March 26, 1958, has remained controversial for over half a century. The investigation into Gibson's death and the subsequent trials and acquittals have made the case one of Vermont's most famous "murder" investigations.In his new book on the case, retired judge Stephen B. Martin of Barre, Vermont offers the fullest account of the events leading up to the victim's disappearance and death, including the individuals involved, and the expert testimony that was brought to light during the court proceedings. The story, he points out from the start, is one of conventional wisdom and how it is created, then overthrown. Where were the investigators with open minds? Why did they twist the facts to suit their theories instead of relying on observation to draw inferences based on what they observed?Arthur Conan Doyle's story The Problem at Thor Bridge bears a striking similarity to the Gibson case. In Martin's view, the mystery of Orville Gibson could have been solved without arousing controversy by a detective of intelligence and method like Sherlock Holmes.
